Eligible projects may include water conservation, storage, streamflow protection or water delivery systems. Businesses, nonprofits and local governments are all eligible to apply.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. April 5. For more information, contact program coordinator Jon Unger at or 503-986-0869.
