DWR is pleased to announce the release of the DRAFT 2022 Guidelines/Proposal Solicitation Package (GL/PSP) for the Urban Community Drought Relief Grant Program for public review. Release of the Draft GL/PSP commences a 15-day public comment period, which will close at 5:00 pm on August 31, 2022.
This solicitation will make approximately $285 million in grant funding available for drought response projects. The drought relief goal is to address immediate impacts on human health and safety and on fish and wildlife resources, and to provide water to persons or communities that lose or are threatened with the loss or contamination of water supplies.
Please note that the Legislature is still working on trailer bill language that could affect this solicitation. The Final GL/PSP will incorporate any legislative changes.
