WaterSMART Water Marketing Strategy Grants

 

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports collaborative planning efforts to develop water markets that will proactively address water supply reliability and increase water management flexibility. Water markets between willing buyers and sellers can be used to help water users meet demands efficiently in times of shortage, thereby helping to prevent water conflicts. By encouraging collaboration and input to the planning process from a range of stakeholders, this FOA will expand the lines of communication between Reclamation and local communities, and among the community stakeholders themselves, restoring community trust.
