DWR Awards $46M to Help Communities Improve Water Supply Reliability, Groundwater Recharge and Water Use Efficiency

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced grant awards to nine projects in six counties through the Urban Community Drought Relief Grant program. The $46 million in financial assistance will provide critical support to implement drought relief projects that build long-term drought and climate resilience in communities across the state, and help advance efforts outlined in Governor Newsom’s strategy to adapt California’s water supply for a hotter and drier future.
