CDFW River Restoration Grants Awarded

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announced recently the selection of five additional projects to receive approximately $9.4 million in grants through its fiscal year 2015-16 Watershed Restoration Grant Program cycle.

These awards were made following an augmentation of funding from the Water Quality, Supply and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (Proposition 1) in the 2016-17 Budget Act.

The grants will fund a diversity of planning, implementation and acquisition projects that further implement the objectives of the California Water Action Plan.

Projects approved for funding include:

  • American River Headwaters Restoration Project (up to $1.8 million to American River Conservancy);
  • Butte Creek Diversion 55 Fish Screen Project (up to $150,000 to Family Water Alliance, Inc.);
  • Johnson Meadow Acquisition, Upper Truckee River (up to $4 million to Tahoe Resource Conservation District);
  • Napa River Restoration Oakville to Oak Knoll Project (up to $800,000 to Napa County Department of Public Works);
  • Oroville Wildlife Area Floodplain Reconnection and Habitat Restoration Project (up to $2.6 million to River Partners).

CDFW is also currently reviewing proposals received in response to its fiscal year 2016-17 Proposition 1 Grant Programs solicitation and anticipates the announcement of awarded projects in November 2016.
