Funding Navigation for California Communities
Funding Navigation for California Communities is an online portal for funding opportunities directed at local governments of California. Grants and other funding resources are categorized under seven project types, and those addressing climate adaptation and resiliency are primarily found under the categories of Drinking Water, Parks, Stormwater, and Wastewater Management. Funding opportunities are profiled for adaptation projects related to water desalination, drought preparedness, restoration of natural floodplains and wetlands, urban and community forestry, green infrastructure, rainwater and stormwater capture and reuse, and adapting water infrastructure systems to climate change, among others.
Specific examples include:
- WaterSMART Drought Resiliency Grant Program (US Bureau of Reclamation) for projects to help communities prepare for and respond to drought
- Integrated Regional Water Management Implementation Grant Program (CA Dept of Water Resources) for projects that adapt water infrastructure systems to climate change
- Urban Green Infrastructure Program (CA Natural Resources Agency) for stormwater management that includes green infrastructure and tree planting
- Stormwater Grant Program (CA Water Resources Control Board) for infrastructure projects that respond to climate change and contribute to regional water security
