Climate, Access, and Resource Funding

The Budget Act of 2021 provided the Delta Conservancy with a one-time general fund allocation of $5,250,000 for projects that support climate resilience, community access, and natural resource protection activities that benefit the Delta (collectively known as Climate, Access, and Resource (CAR) funding).

The Delta Conservancy has determined that proposals submitted through the Conservancy’s Proposition 1 (Cycle 5) or Proposition 68 Grants Programs may be supported through the CAR program if the project meets CAR requirements. The Conservancy will accept new CAR proposals while funding remains available and may consider projects proposed through Proposition 68 or Proposition 1, as appropriate.
