Stormwater Flood Management Grants

These grants are designed for projects that manage stormwater runoff to reduce flooding and are ready, or nearly ready, to proceed to implementation. Projects must be consistent with applicable Regional Water Quality Control Board Basin Plans, not be part of the State Plan of Flood Control and yield multiple benefits which may include groundwater recharge, water quality improvements, ecosystem restoration benefits, and reduction of instream erosion and sedimentation.
 
DWR's IRWM Grant Program is designed to encourage integrated regional management of water resources, including flood management, and provide funding for projects that support integrated water management planning and implementation. This PSP works in conjunction with IRWM Grant Program Guidelines to disburse this first round of SWFM grant funding under the Disaster Preparedness and Flood Prevention Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 1E).
