Cleanup and Abatement Account
The Cleanup and Abatement Account (CAA) was created by Water Code Sections 13440-13443 to provide public agencies with grants for the cleanup or abatement of a condition of pollution when there are no viable responsible parties available to undertake the work. Eligible entities that could apply for this funding include public agencies, as well as certain not-for-profit organizations and tribal governments that serve a disadvantaged community and that have the authority to clean up or abate the effects of a waste. Annual lists of CAA funded projects can be found under the ‘Funded CAA Projects’ heading at the link above.

Drinking Water State Revolving Fund
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Program is administered by staff in the State Water Board’s Division of Financial Assistance (DFA). Eligible applicants include community water systems and non-profit, non-community water systems.
