The State Water Resources Control Board administers two groundwater quality funding programs:

  • Site Cleanup Subaccount Program (SCAP) (Senate Bill 445, Hill, 2014), which provides grants to remediate the harm or threat of harm to human health, safety, or the environment caused by existing or threatened human-made contamination, where the responsible party lacks financial resources.  The first step to apply for the SCAP Program is a Pre-Application, which must be submitted electronically using the State Water Board's Financial Assistance Application Submittal Tool (FAAST).  See the SCAP webpage for additional information regarding eligibility, funding limits, etc.
  • Proposition 1 Groundwater Grant Program (Assembly Bill 1471, Chapter 10), which provides planning and implementation grants to prevent and cleanup contamination of groundwater that serves or has served as a source of drinking water.  See Prop 1 Groundwater Grant Program webpage regarding eligibility, funding limits, how to apply, etc.
