Agency Name

Bureau of Reclamation, Denver Office 


With recent enactment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
(Recovery Act), the Bureau of Reclamation will be accepting new applications
for RECOVERY ACT Funding under the Challenge Grant Program for Water
Marketing and Efficiency Grants. The objective of this Announcement will be
to invite irrigation and water districts, United States Territories, States
in the West, and other local entities with water delivery authority to
leverage their money and resources by cost sharing with Reclamation on
projects that bank water, market water, conserve water, or generally make
more efficient use of existing water supplies and that will preserve and
create jobs, assist those impacted by the recession, provide investments in
infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits, and complete a
project that will provide a useful service. Projects will be selected
through a competitive process. The Department of the Interior (Interior)
believes that water banks and markets are essential to secure water supplies
in water-short areas of the West. Interior strongly supports the use of
these mechanisms, providing that State law allows for them, to enable water
to be shifted to address competing water uses while recognizing existing
water rights. Accordingly, Water Marketing and Efficiency Grants
applications proposing water banking or marketing elements are given
priority in the selection process. Applications under this activity for
Recovery Act funding are different from applications previously submitted
for Water Marketing and Efficiency Grants on January 14, 2009. To be
considered previous applicants must reapply. Projects using Recovery Act
Funding will be subject to additional reporting requirements, Davis Bacon
Wage Rate Determinations, and the Buy American Act.
