Small Grant Program-NEW
The Westside Regional Water Management Group has developed a small grant program to help accomplish the vision of the Westside IRWMP. The small grant program will disperse funds on an annual basis to projects or programs that meet the goals and objectives of the IRWMP. No more than 25% of the Westside IRWMP funds will be expended per fiscal year towards this program and awards will be capped at a maximum of $25,000 per project. There is no match requirement for this program; however, points will be awarded to projects or programs that demonstrate a local match.
