Funding Opportunity- The Department of Conservation Sustainable Groundwater Management (SGMA) Watershed Coordinator Grant: Due Date- September 15, 202009/11/2020 - 09/13/2020 All day
California's watershed systems play a critical role in delivering vital water supplies throughout the state. Because watersheds vary greatly across different geographies of the state, regionally tailored watershed management efforts are necessary for success. Watershed coordinators play an important role increasing watershed health.
A watershed coordinator is a position that the state funds for a local government or non-profit to work with local stakeholders and downstream beneficiaries. The purpose is to develop plans and projects to improve watershed health, and to achieve state and local natural resources goals. Their work is centered around the ability to leverage local relationships and understandings, to build broad and trusting coalitions across a watershed and to cultivate a shared vision of progress. Key state policy goals that watershed coordinators help to achieve include:
Water Supply and Quality
Forest Health and Fire Prevention
Biodiversity and Species Recovery
