13 Drought Program

14 Basin Studies Program

15 Cooperative Watershed Management Grants Sierra Streams Institute in northcentral California Flathead Basin Commission in western Montana Middle Colorado Watershed Council in Western Colorado Rio Grande Restoration, Inc. in northern New Mexico

16 How do I get a grant? Review available grant types and identify a project that is a good fit for the grant requirements. Most Reclamation FOAs do not change substantially from year to year so look at previous year s FOAs to begin your proposal. Start grant development as early as possible to allow all parts of your organization to contribute to and approve proposal. If you have questions, contact Reclamation ASAP!

17 How do I get a grant? **KEEP APPLYING** Request for Proposals (RFP)/Request for Application (RFA) Give yourself time to write the proposal!

18 IMPORTANT READ THE FOA!! Read everything in the Funding Opportunity Announcement and ask questions if something doesn t make sense.

19 FOA Table of Contents

20 Tips Apply for multiple grants, if it is the same project selected for multiple awards, we all talk with each other and the grant opportunity providing the most benefit will be awarded. If it is a large project, consider phasing your project and applying for funding in sequential years. Don t assume that the Grantor knows you. The committee is made up of people from all over the 17 western states. Focus on the Evaluation Criteria. Ask for help!

21 Tips Understand that the 50/50 cost share is non-federal funding, so you could apply for state funding for the same project. The state funding can count as your cost share portion. If your application does not get awarded, ask for a debrief to help prepare a better proposal next year.
