Integrated Regional Water Management Grants

Stormwater Flood Management Grants

Stormwater Flood Management Grants are designed for projects that manage stormwater runoff to reduce flooding and are ready, or nearly ready, to proceed to implementation. Projects must be consistent with applicable Regional Water Quality Control Board Basin Plans, not be part of the State Plan of Flood Control and yield multiple benefits which may include groundwater recharge, water quality improvements, ecosystem restoration benefits, and reduction of instream erosion and sedimentation.
