The Water 2025 Challenge Grants - administered by the Bureau of Reclamation - provide local water and irrigation districts throughout the West with funds to support a variety of projects to make more efficient use of existing water supplies through water conservation, efficiency, and water marketing projects. The Challenge Grant program focuses on meeting the goals identified in Water 2025: Preventing Crises and Conflict in the West. In late June, Interior Secretary Gale Norton approved more than $4 million dollars in water conservation grants under the Water 2025 Challenge Grant Program. President George Bush has requested $21 million for the initiative in Fiscal Year 2005.
