Water Project Grants and Loans provide funding to evaluate, plan, and implement instream and out-of-stream water resource projects that result in economic, environmental and social/cultural public benefits. Eligible projects include water conservation and reuse; above- and below-ground storage; streamflow protection or restoration; and water distribution, conveyance or delivery systems. Non-profits, businesses, governments and others are eligible to apply.
