  3. General Grant Application Acceptance Windows and Integrated Regional Water Management Plan
    The Agency supports coordinated development and use of the Integrated Regional Water Management Plan (IRWMP). Pursuant to policy section 9.0(A), external grant funding shall be leveraged for eligible projects or programs to the extent possible by way of the IRWMP process.

Grant requests outside the IRWM process are accepted only during application acceptance windows of March 1 to April 1 and September 1 and October 1 pursuant to policy section 9.0(B).
