The SGM Grant Program's SGMA Implementation Round 2 will provide funding to GSAs and other responsible entities to update/revise/modify their GSPs or their Alternatives to a GSP. The funding will also be used towards implementing the GSP or Alternative Plan. This funding is for eligible applicants with projects located in medium and high priority basins, including critically overdrafted (COD) basins.
The Legislature has provided $202.5 million to DWR for SGMA Implementation activities, that includes planning and implementation projects. DWR will solicit proposals to award funding through a competitive application basis for tasks and activities that help the basins reach sustainability through investments in groundwater recharge and/or projects that prevent or clean up contamination of a groundwater that serves as a source of drinking water. Tasks and activities can also include updating/revising/modifying a GSP(s) or Alternative Plan. Eligible applicants are GSAs, member agencies of GSAs, and agencies with an Alternative to a GSP. All applicants must be within a medium or high priority basin with a GSP or Alternative to a GSP. Basins that were adjudicated after January 1, 2015 (or are in the process of adjudicating after January 1, 2015) or considered probationary under SGMA by the State Water Resources Control Board at or after the time of application submittal are also eligible for funding. Those applicants located within basins that adjudicated prior to January 1, 2015 are not eligible to apply for or receive grant funding. The project area and service area must be within the most current DWR Bulletin 118 basin that is designated as medium or high priority, including COD basins, by the latest SGMA Basin Prioritization at the time of application submittal. Only one application will be accepted per basin. The application process, application review process, schedule, program preferences, and definitions are outlined within the funding guidance documents posted on the SGM Grant Program's webpage on December 17, 2021. Applicants will use the guidance provided in the PSP to submit their application online for DWR review. We recommend interested parties to review the funding 2021 Guidelines and Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP) for all details.
