2018 Call for Projects – Open Solicitation
The Upper Feather River Regional Water Management Group (RWMG) has opened a solicitation for Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Plan implementation projects. The purpose of the solicitation is to perform periodic updates to the IRWM Plan implementation project list. Projects should address adopted Plan goals and objectives, California Water Plan resource management strategies, and Department of Water Resources’ priorities for projects. Projects developed through this process will undergo a review and selection process for inclusion in the IRWM Plan as implementation projects, which will then be eligible for future Department of Water Resources IRWM grant funding opportunities. Benefits of having a project included in the IRWM Plan also extend to supporting other local and regional efforts to secure competitive statewide grant funding.
Application forms and information are available via the link below. This is an open solicitation with RWMG review and consideration scheduled to occur quarterly. In order for projects to be eligible for the next Department of Water Resources IRWM implementation grant, projects should be submitted for inclusion in the Plan now. For consideration at the next RWMG meeting, the following project application forms (submit all 3) must be submitted by June 4, 2018:
- UFR Implementation Project Step 1 Application
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis Worksheet
- Climate Change Project Assessment
