The Department of Water Resources has released the draft guidelines for the Prop 1 grant program to fund multi-benefit flood risk reduction projects that (1) address flood risk for urban communities, small communities and/or rural areas; and (2) enhance ecosystems by improving fish and wildlife habitat and water quality downstream. Projects must be in the Central Valley and within or adjacent to the Systemwide Planning Area (PDF). Projects in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (Delta) are excluded.
Other project features may include:
Improved flow in tributaries to the Delta
Floodplain creation or restoration of natural floodplains
