This is the 10th year for the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District’s Grant Program. For 2019, $150,000 was allocated for funding assistance. The deadline for applications was February 28, 2019 and the District received over $250,000 in grant requests. All of the requests were diverse and beneficial to the water users in the basin. In the March meeting, the Board of Directors approved the Grant Committee’s recommendations and awarded the full allocated amount of $150,000. This round of funding brings the total to over $1.25 million in grant funding since 2009. The District staff and Board of Directors thanks everyone for their participation and look forward to working with all of the 2019 grant recipients.
