Department of Water Resources (DWR) has released a Draft Proposal Solicitation Package for Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs) and projects.

This round will offer approximately $86.3 million, with at least $10 million for projects that serve severely disadvantaged communities. Eligible projects must be related to high and medium priority basins.
Public comments will be accepted until June 19, 2017. Three public meetings will be held in Sacramento (June 12), Fresno (June 13), and Irvine (June 14).
