From email from the Colorado Water Conservation Board:
The Colorado Water Conservation Board is seeking proposals for its Alternative Agricultural Water Transfers Method (ATM) Grant Program. The ATM Grant Program is focused at advancing alternatives to the permanent transfer of agricultural irrigation water rights to municipal and industrial purposes. It is expected that this grant cycle will fund projects that build upon work performed in past funding cycles and encourage more “on-the-ground” projects (i.e. pilot/demonstration projects, facilitating agreements between municipal water providers and irrigators, etc.). Descriptions, summary reports and/or findings of past work can be found in the technical memorandum: Alternative Agricultural Water Transfer Methods Grant Program Summary and Status Update (November 2012).
Grant applications must be received by the CWCB by April 15, 2013 for consideration by the Board at their May 14-15, 2013 meeting.
To obtain additional information, copies of the technical memorandum, ATM Grant Program Criteria and Guidelines and grant application, please go to the following webpage: http://cwcb.state.co.us/LoansGrants/alternative-agricultural-water-transfer-methods-grants/Pages/main.aspx.
