The Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District Board of Directors announces the availability of $200,000 in Upper Gunnison Grant Funding for projects within the District that would enhance water supply or improve stream conditions. Funding for demonstration projects is also available this year through a separate District Watershed Management Planning (WMP) project funding allocation and a grant from the Colorado Water Conservation Board. Such projects would include but not be limited to water system efficiency improvements, delivery structure or system improvements, construction of new storage impoundments, enlargement or rehabilitation of existing impoundments, and restoring or enhancing riparian habitat. Requests for financial assistance will be considered only for projects that are consistent with the District’s purpose, mission, and objectives, and that have a 50 percent match (match not required for WMP funds). Water supply projects that provide benefits for agricultural, municipal, domestic, environmental or recreational uses are considered eligible.
Project applicants must submit an application to the District by close of business, February 28, 2020. Application materials can be obtained here, or by contacting the District office at 210 W. Spencer Avenue, Suite B, Gunnison, CO, 81230, 970-641-6065, firstname.lastname@example.org.
