Get your grant writing assistance line up now! DWR has released the draft Regional Flood Management Assistance Program (RFMAP) Guidelines (PDF) for a 45-day public comment period. The proposed guidelines outline the new RFMAP’s structure and process for applying for State funding for the six regional flood management groups.
RFMAP funds can be used by local public agencies to pursue projects that focus on improved regional governance and Levee Maintaining Agency consolidation in support of DWR’s Flood Maintenance Assistance Program. When appropriate, the funds can be used to implement programs, studies, and activities described in the Regional Flood Management Plans that are consistent with the 2017 Central Valley Flood Protection Plan Update.
The 45-day comment period closes at 5 p.m. on March 4, 2019. Comments can be submitted by one of the following methods:
