Proposition 1 Grant Program Cycle 4 Grant Awards

WEST SACRAMENTO – [MAY 23, 2019] – The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy Board has approved seven grants, totaling $11 million, as part of the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (Proposition 1) Grant Program.

Combined, these seven projects involve 51 entities partnering to improve the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, including state and federal agencies, non-profit organizations, private landowners and businesses, local governments, and special districts.  “The Conservancy is proud to continue demonstrating that ecosystem restoration in the Delta can have widespread local support,” said Campbell Ingram, Executive Officer of the Delta Conservancy.

Each project is located in one or more of the five Delta counties: Contra Costa, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, and Yolo.  The $11 million awarded in this cycle will benefit the region through restoration and enhancement of important habitat areas in the Delta and controlling nutria, a destructive invasive species.

One of the approved projects is “Delta Working Waterways Habitat Restoration Planning” by the Solano Resource Conservation District (RCD).  “These funds give us the opportunity to sink into a planning process with many stakeholders over thousands of acres of agricultural land,” said Chris Rose, Executive Director of the Solano RCD.  “This allows us to spend time with land owners and agency partners to work on projects that are mutually-beneficial both to efficient agriculture and for habitat improvement and enhancement.”
