Climate Analysis Tools

The WaterSMART Grants to Develop Climate Analysis Tools are financial assistance opportunities to universities, non-profits and other organizations with water or power delivery authority. Proposals will be invited to leverage non-federal money in a 50/50 cost-share manner with Reclamation on projects designed to enhance the management of water resources, including developing tools to assess the impacts of climate change on water resources and inform management decisions with respect to those impacts.

Projects will focus on the information gaps outlined in the joint Reclamation and United States Army Corps of Engineers Report titled Addressing Climate Change in Long-Term Water Resources Planning and Management: User Needs for Improving Tools and Information.

Projects will support ongoing efforts under the SECURE Water Act (Subtitle F of Title IX of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, P.L. 111-11 (42 USC 10364), including efforts within DOI Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), Basin Studies, and West-Wide Climate Risk Assessments.
