Central Valley Project Improvement Act Grant Program

SOLICITATION NOW CLOSED- Applications under review

Proposition 1, the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014, allocates $475,000,000 to the California Natural Resources Agency for projects that fulfill the obligations of the State of California in complying with the terms of several agreements. One of the agreements is the Central Valley Project Improvement Act (CVPIA). The 2016/17 budget appropriated $89.15 million from this allocation to meet the state’s commitments for implementation of Section 3406(d) of CVPIA to improve water deliveries on the wildlife habitat areas.


These guidelines, developed in consultation with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, stakeholders and partners, will govern how these funds are allocated and spent.
