DWR has released the Central Valley Tributaries Program Guidelines and Proposal Solicitation

Flooding in recent years provides a reminder of how important it is to invest in California’s flood infrastructure. The Central Valley Tributaries Program is a new program that provides Proposition 1 State funds for multi-benefit flood risk reduction projects on tributaries of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. This program will fund projects that address Central Valley flood risk for urban and small communities, enhance ecosystems, and improve fish and wildlife habitat.
