The Proposition 1 Storm Water Grant Program funds multi-benefit storm water management projects, such as: green infrastructure, rainwater and storm water capture projects, and storm water treatment facilities.
This "Round 2" solicitation is for implementation projects only (no planning grants).
Instead of being viewed as a resource, storm water and dry weather runoff has historically been seen as a problem that must be moved to the ocean as quickly as possible or as a source of contamination, contributing to the loss of usable water supplies and the pollution and impairment of rivers, lakes, streams, and coastal waters. Eligible Projects are those that capture, treat, infiltrate and/or use storm water/dry weather runoff for a variety of potential benefits, including (but not limited to): Water Supply, Water Quality, Flood Protection, Environmental, Community.
To be eligible for funding, projects must be listed in a Storm Water Resource Plan that the State Water Board has concurred with. Note: Projects benefiting a Disadvantaged Community (DAC) with a population of 20,000 or less that is not a co-permittee for an storm water permit issued to a municipality with a population of more than 20,000, and/or (2)projects that are in an Area of Special Biological Significance (ASBS) and are covered under an approved ASBS Compliance Plan, are exempt from this requirement. Exempt projects still must be submitted to the local Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) group for incorporation into an adopted IRWM Plan.
