Implementing the California Water Action Plan in the Coachella Valley.
Any project that meets the objectives of Proposition 1 may apply, but the Conservancy is particularly interested in the following endeavors:
Land acquisition projects that preserve watershed features, flows into the aquifer, Whitewater River and Flood Plain or the Salton Sea; prevent flooding; or conserve habitat areas for endangered or threatened species of animals and plants. Watershed restoration or enhancement projects, such as those that reclaim natural features like streambeds, washes, or percolation areas; remove invasive species that draw excessive amounts of water from the aquifer or harm endangered or threatened species; or create refugia or new habitat area for such species. Infrastructure projects that facilitate water management or develop delivery structures that help reduce water use or enhance efficiency in a manner that complements surrounding habitat values.
A pre application consultation meeting must be requested by July 20, 2021. As part of that process, a short pre application form must be submitted. Please contact the Conservancy to schedule the meeting and request the form.

Projects must be located within, or provide direct benefits to, the jurisdiction of the Conservancy which is entirely within Riverside County and matches the boundaries of the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan.
Matching Funding Requirement:
While there is no minimum amount of matching funding required, applicants are strongly encouraged to obtain other funding. Most Prop 1 grants made by the Conservancy have provided 20 - 30% of their funding from elsewhere.
