As water conservation, water infrastructure improvements, river and wetland restoration, watershed planning, and water quality monitoring become a focus nationwide, many different avenues for funding have become available. Our staff can help your team assess project feasibility, generate anticipated costs, and develop preliminary concepts so that you can submit complete, detailed, and competitive funding applications.
We have experience with various grant and funding sources such as those from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Fish and Wildlife Federation, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the New Mexico River Stewardship Program, the New Mexico Water Trust Board, the U.S. Forest Service Collaborative Forest Restoration Program, and others.
At SWCA, we want to make sure that having access to these funding resources is easy. The list of resources below will be updated throughout the year, and we encourage you to check back for new information.
