NSV IRWM Project Submittal Period Open

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has released the Proposition 1, Round 2 Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP) to fund IRWM projects. Up to $1.2 Million is available in the Northern Sacramento Valley Integrated Regional Water Management (NSV IRWM) region and another $1.1 million is available to the Mountain Counties Funding Area portion of the region. The NSV wants to know if your project is ready to receive funding. The grant application will be due February 1, 2023 and projects will be considered for inclusion in the funding application by the NSV TAC in September and by the NSV Board in October. 

Please review the PSP and Guidelines to evaluate whether your project is a good fit for this funding opportunity. If you’d like to have it considered for funding by the NSV, please contact your County representative by September 2, 2022 and provide a brief project description and estimated project budget. Eligible projects are listed in the Guidelines document on pages 11-13.

If your project is not yet included in the NSV IRWM Plan, please complete the application and send it to your County representative and to cbuck@buttecounty.net or submit your project using the NEW online version of the NSV IRWM Project Submittal Form. Access the online application at https://arcg.is/11anfD. Project submittals are due by September 2, 2022.  Reach out to your County representative if you have any questions. 

The NSV TAC meets on September 21, 2022 and will be considering new projects to add to the Plan and projects to recommend to the NSV Board to include in the application for funding.
