The Colorado River District is now accepting applications for grant funding to assist projects that protect, enhance or develop water resources within its 15-county region. Applications are due Jan. 29, 2016. The total amount available for the 2016 competitive grant program is $150,000.

Projects eligible for the grant program must achieve one or more of the following objectives:

• develop a new water supply;

• improve an existing system;

• improve in-stream water quality;

• increase water use efficiency;

• reduce sediment loading;

• implement a watershed management action;

• control invasive riparian vegetation; or

• protect pre-Colorado River Compact water rights (typically includes those in use before 1929).

By policy, successful grantees can receive up to a maximum of $150,000 (or approximately 25 percent of the total project cost; in the case of smaller projects, this percentage may be slightly higher) for their project. Qualifying projects must have either been completed within the last 12 months or are on track to be constructed within the next 18 months.
