The Small Community Drought Relief Program is to provide immediate and near-term financial and technical support to help small communities survive this and future droughts. California Native American tribes are eligible to apply. Eligible projects shall be in counties included in Governor Newsom’s state of emergency proclamations for 2021. Any county or jurisdiction included in a future drought proclamation by the Governor or for circumstances for which the SWRCB determines that drought conditions necessitate urgent and immediate action to ensure availability of safe drinking water, to protect public health and safety, will also qualify for funding. The grant funding is non-competitive. Therefore, the proposals will not be scored. The proposals will only be evaluated against program objectives and applicants must specify their eligibility in their proposals. We encourage tribal nations to get their proposals in quickly.
