CDFA and DWR Accepting RFPs for Joint Agricultural Water Efficiency Program

This pilot grant program will combine $3 million in funding from DWR’s Proposition 1 fund, for agricultural water suppliers to pressurize the delivery of water directly to growers. This modernizes water deliveries to match technological upgrades by growers to create more efficient irrigation systems. CDFA’s State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program will provide an additional $3 million for growers to receive that water and utilize it through technologies such as drip, subsurface drip, and micro-sprinkler irrigation systems.

Agricultural water suppliers such as irrigation districts will be the lead applicants for the joint program and will work with agricultural operations within their service areas to prepare a proposal for funding. Grant applications will be due on April 21, 2017.
