DAC Involvement Program

The Disadvantaged Community Involvement Program is designed to ensure the involvement of disadvantaged communities (DACs), economically distressed areas (EDAs), or underrepresented communities (collectively referred to as DACs) in IRWM planning efforts. The Proposition 1 2016 IRWM Guidelines establish the general process, procedures, and criteria that DWR will use to implement the IRWM DAC Involvement Program. The DAC Involvement Request for Proposals (RFP) provides the details for the proposal and award process. Please see below for the final DAC Involvement RFP.

 

DWR is making not less than $51 million (10% of the total $510 million) available for cooperative Funding Area-wide efforts; the minimum amount of funding for a Funding Area is listed below.
