Proposition 50 CALFED Watershed Program

Funding Information | Contact Information | Reference Material | Funded Projects

Proposition 50 CALFED Watershed Program grant funds are distributed through the State Water Resources Control Board and the Department of Water Resources (DWR).

Proposition 50 CALFED Watershed Program funds which were not awarded through the 2003 Consolidated Grants process, will be administered through the 2005-06 Consolidated Grants process.

The CALFED Watershed Program, funded by Proposition 13 and Proposition 50, provides funding for watershed protection projects that meet the following objectives:

  • Facilitate and improve coordination and assistance among government agencies, other organizations, and local watershed groups.
  • Develop watershed monitoring and assessment protocols to be integrated into the overall CALFED science and monitoring program.
  • Support education and outreach.
  • Integrate the Watershed Program with other CALFED Programs.
  • Define the relationship between watershed processes and the CALFED Program goals and objectives.
  • Implement a strategy that will assure support and long-term sustainability of local watershed activities.
Implementation Priorities

To pursue these objectives the program has established a set of initial implementation priorities. These implementation priorities will be pursued through this grant process. They are as follows:

  • Building local community capacity to assess and effectively manage watersheds that affect the bay delta system.
  • Development or refinement of watershed assessments and plans.
  • Design, development and implementation of specific watershed conservation, maintenance, and restoration actions.
