    Bureau of Reclamation Announces Fiscal Year 2020 Grant Funding Opportunity for Drought Planning

    WASHINGTON – The Bureau of Reclamation today announced that it is making grant funding available under the WaterSMART Drought Response Program to develop and update drought contingency plans that will build long-term resiliency to drought.

    “The drought planning that emerges from this program is a big win for both Reclamation and its partners. When implemented, it will increase water supply reliability, improve water management and provide benefits for fish, wildlife, and the environment. That’s impactful,” said Reclamation’s Drought Response Program Manager Darion Mayhorn.

    Eligible applicants for funding include states, tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, or other organizations with water or power delivery authority located in the 17 Western United States and Hawaii.

    This funding opportunity will provide up to $200,000 per agreement to develop new drought plans or update existing plans. In general, recipients must match the funding with at least 50% funding from a non-federal source. In exceptional circumstances, a reduction or waiver of the non-federal cost-share may be considered. Work must be completed within two years of the funding award.

    Applications for fiscal year 2020 funding are due Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. MST. Learn more at www.grants.gov by searching for funding opportunity number BOR-DO-20-F003.
