  • The Bureau of Reclamation’s WaterSMART Program released funding opportunities for 2018.  Both funding opportunities focus on solving issues related to drought in the Western United States.
  • FOA BOR-DO-18-F007 provides up to $200,000 financial support for applicants that need to develop or update a drought contingency plan.  Projects that develop a new Drought Contingency Plan or update an existing Drought Contingency Plan are eligible for funding.  The deadline for this funding opportunity is February 7, 2018, at 4:00 PM, Mountain Standard Time.  Applications can be submitted electronically at https://www.grants.gov/applicants/apply-for-grants.html, or via physical mail.  For questions, please email Mr. Kevin Connolly.
  • FOA BOR-DO-18-F008 provides two different funding groups for projects that will increase water management flexibility and improve the resiliency of water resources throughout the West.  Drought resiliency projects mitigate the effects of drought by increasing the reliability of water supplies, improving water management, and providing benefits for fish, wildlife, and the environment.  In Funding Group I, the federal government will fund up to $300,000 per agreement for a project completed within two (2) years of the initial funding date.  In Funding Group II, the federal government will fund up to $750,000 per agreement for a project completed within two (2) years of the initial funding date.  The deadline for this funding opportunity is February 13, 2018, at 4:00 PM, Mountain Standard Time.  Applications can be submitted electronically at https://www.grants.gov/applicants/apply-for-grants.html, or via physical mail.  For questions, please email Mr. Josh German.
