Watershed Restoration Grants Branch

The Watershed Restoration Grants Branch (WRGB) administers grant funding and oversees CDFW's Cutting the Green Tape Program to deliver science-informed grants for restoration of ecological function and conservation, and assesses the success of those efforts at a large-scale. Grant programs administered by WRGB include restoration programs funded through bonds (Proposition 1 and Proposition 68), the Fisheries Restoration Grant Program, Nature Based Solutions, and restoration programs supporting water and habitat resiliency to drought and climate challenges.
