The principal goal of the Conservancy 's Proposition 1 grant program is to support implementation of the Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program by providing funding for multi-benefit stormwater, watershed and ecosystem restoration, aquatic invasive species, forest health, and sustainable communities projects.
The California Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) leads California's efforts to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural and recreational resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Proposition 1 allocates $15 million directly to the Conservancy for multi-benefit ecosystem and watershed protection and restoration projects consistent with the California Water Action Plan and other State priorities, including the Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program (EIP). The principal goal of the Conservancy Proposition 1 grant program is to support implementation of the EIP by providing funding for multi-benefit stormwater, watershed and ecosystem restoration, aquatic invasive species, forest health, and sustainable communities projects. This grant program also furthers Executive Order B-30-15, which establishes a California greenhouse gas reduction target of 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, and directs state agencies to factor climate change into planning and investment decisions. In two previous rounds, the Conservancy has awarded $12.9 million for 17 local assistance grants. For Round 3, there is up to $1.1 million available for Stormwater Quality and Ecosystem and Watershed Management projects. While there is no grant request limit, the Conservancy seeks to award approximately three to five grants. Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with Conservancy staff prior to preparing an application, and applications and all required attachments are due electronically. All grant agreements must be fully executed by June 30, 2022 and closed out by May 15, 2024.
