Funding Title Proposition 1 Restoration Grant Programs
Description Proposition 1 amended the California Water Code (CWC) to add, among other articles, Sections 79737 and 79738, authorizing the Legislature to appropriate $372,500,000 to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to fund multi-benefit ecosystem and watershed protection and restoration projects. CDFW will distribute these funds on a competitive basis through two grant programs, collectively referred to as the Proposition 1 Restoration Grant Programs. The Watershed Restoration Grant Program ($285,000,000) will focus on watershed restoration and protection projects of statewide importance outside of the Delta. The Delta Water Quality and Ecosystem Restoration Grant Program ($87,500,000) will focus on water quality, ecosystem restoration and fish protection facilities that benefit the Delta. CDFW finalized its Project Solicitation and Evaluation Guidelines for the Proposition 1 Watershed Restoration & Delta Water Quality and Ecosystem Restoration Grant Programs in June 2015 (CDFW Restoration Grant Guidelines). Requirements, Eligibility and other information can be found at the links below.
