Water Strategy GrantsPreviously known as Water Marketing Strategy Grants.
Through Water Strategy Grants, Reclamation provides financial assistance for water supply projects, water marketing activities, water management projects, and/or activities and river restoration activities, including planning projects to restore a natural feature or to use a nature-based feature to reduce water supply and demand imbalances or the risk of drought or flooding; and projects that otherwise mitigate against the impacts of climate change to fish and wildlife habitats. This includes planning projects that will provide benefits to multiple sectors, such as agricultural, municipal, Tribal, or recreation water uses.
