California Department of Water Resources: Riverine Stewardship Program – in coordination with the San Joaquin Fish Population Enhancement Program (SJFPEP) and Urban Streams Restoration Program (USRP) – Proposition 13, Proposition 84 and Proposition 68
Deadline: August 30, 2019
Amount: Up to $1 million (USRP applications may be awarded a maximum of $1 million per grant; but, exceptional proposals requesting funding greater than the established maximum will be considered on a case-by-case basis.)
Match: USRP requires a minimum 20% funding match unless the grant benefits a DAC. No match required for DACs.
Eligibility: Local public agencies and certified nonprofits. Limited in geographic scope to the tributaries of the San Joaquin River, including the Cosumnes, Mokelumne, Calaveras, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, and the Merced rivers, and the San Joaquin River between its confluence with the Mokelumne River and its confluence with the Merced River.
Funding is available for planning and implementation of projects that restore streams, creeks, and rivers to enhance the environment for fish, wildlife, and people through one grant cycle. The SJFPEP goals are to enhance native fish populations in the San Joaquin River watershed and reduce vulnerability of fishes to water diversions at all life stages upstream of the Delta.
The USRP goals include: (1) protecting, enhancing and restoring the natural, ecological value of streams; (2) preventing future property damage caused by flooding and bank erosion; and (3) promoting community involvement, education, and riverine stewardship.
SJFPEP is funded by Proposition 13 and USRP is funded by Propositions 84 and 68.
