Important notice to stakeholders who currently have projects in the IRWM Plan: With this project solicitation, we will be starting an entirely new Project List for the IRWM Plan. All existing projects in the Plan will get removed, and we will create a new Project List from scratch. If you want to keep your project in the Plan, you must submit a new proposal now.

Note that the Regional Water Management Group has recently updated its Project Review Process for the IRWM Plan. A summary of the revised Project Review Process is available for download below.

An economic screening tool has been developed to assist project proponents and the Regional Water Management Group in assessing the economic benefits of projects in the IRWM Region. Project proponents are not required to submit the economic screening tool with their project applications at this time.
