California Department of Water Resources – Integrated Regional Water Management

  Grant Amount: Not Specified


The California Department of Water Resources is accepting applications to the Integrated Regional Water Management Implementation Grant Program.
This program is designed to encourage integrated regional strategies for water resource management in California by providing funding for projects and programs throughout the state including climate change adaptation, providing incentives for collaboration and setting priorities in water resource and infrastructure management, and improving regional water self-reliance while reducing reliance on Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
Subject to regional priorities, projects may include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Water reuse and recycling;
  • Water-use efficiency and water conservation;
  • Local and regional surface and underground water storage, including groundwater aquifer cleanup or recharge projects;
  • Regional water conveyance facilities that improve integration of separate water systems;
  • Watershed protection, restoration, and management projects, including projects that reduce the risk of wildfire or improve water supply reliability;
  • Stormwater resource and flood management;
  • Conjunctive use of surface and groundwater storage facilities;
  • Water desalination projects;
  • Decision support tools to model regional water management strategies to account for climate change and other changes in regional demand and supply projections;
  • Improvement of water quality, including drinking water, groundwater, wastewater treatment, water pollution prevention, and management of urban and agricultural runoff;
  • Regional projects or programs as defined by the IRWM Planning Act (Water Code §10537).
The 50% matching fund requirement does not apply to Disadvantaged Communities with an annual median household income that is less than 80 percent of the statewide annual median household income. Other state fund sources cannot be used for the 50% funding match requirement.
