Coachella Valley Mountains Conservancy Proposition 1 Grant Program
Grants are awarded for projects that fulfill one or more of the statutory objectives of Proposition 1 and complies with the General Obligation Bond Law. Three categories of projects are specifically preferred : (a) acquisition projects involving the purchase of land for conservation that implements the key objectives of the California Water Action Plan, (b) watershed restoration projects associated with the enhancement of watershed-related natural features, such as washes, channels, streams or riverbeds, and (c) infrastructure projects related to the improvement of water management structures to complement surrounding habitat values.
Awards are made through a competitive process initiated by periodic Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA), which typically are issued once or twice a year. This NOFA was released on July 1, 2022. To respond to the the NOFA, a short preliminary application form, available from the Conservancy, must be submitted, and thereafter the applicant must participate in a pre application consultation with Conservancy staff. After that, the application can be submitted for review by the Conservancy's independent review panel and ultimately consideration by the Conservancy board. Further details on the application procedure can be found in the Proposition 1 Guidelines on the Conservancy's website.
