The California Natural Resources Agency is pleased to announce the release of the guidelines and application for the California River Parkways (RP) grant program. Awards for this program will be made pursuant to the River Parkways Act of 2004. The program seeks projects that produce multiple benefits which reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase water use efficiency, reduce risks from climate change impacts and demonstrate collaboration with local, state and community entities.

Planting native and drought-tolerant vegetation, enabling groundwater recharge and protecting watersheds are just a few examples of how river parkway projects can promote water conservation goals
