3. Grant Program Concepts Part of an IRWM Plan or Process Eligible Project Meets at least 1 objective Protect Communities from Drought Protect & Improve Water Quality Reduce Dependence on Imported Water = 1Project element from § 79561 Must meet specific requirements from Bond Law and implementing legislation SWRCB required to fund projects with Approved plan. AB 1747 requires DWR to require approved plan, but that requirement could then be waived. Have slightly different definitions of what the minimum standard is for an IRWM Plan – both agencies will work together to develop a board standard for IRWM Plans meets the both of the existing definitions.SWRCB required to fund projects with Approved plan.
