Aquarius: A Modeling System for River Basin Water Allocation

Aquarius is a software application developed by the Rocky Mountain Research Station of the U. S Forest Service and Colorado State University. The modeling system depicts the temporal and spatial allocation of water flows among competing traditional and nontraditional water uses in a river basin. The program can be used to determine economically efficient water destination strategies by systematically examining, using a nonlinear optimization technique, the feasibility of reallocating unused or marginally valuable water storage and releases in favor of alternative uses.

EPA Environmental Finance Center Grants

Environmental Finance Centers (EFCs) are funded by grants from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide environmental-finance expertise and outreach to states, tribes, local governments, and the private sector. The EFCs work with these entities to help them fund, finance, and manage the growing costs of environmental protection and compliance. The EFCs provide finance-related training, education, and analytical studies to help state and communities develop solutions for paying for initiative and programs required to meet environmental standards set by federal laws such as the Clean Water Act.

HUD Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery

Congress often funds state and local recovery efforts by appropriating funds to the Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG-DR) authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 and administered by HUD. CDBG funds are typically allocated by formula grants to support economic development activities of state and local governments.  Through supplemental appropriations, Congress allocates funds to HUD to distribute block grants to help communities support both short-term disaster relief as well as long-term recovery.
