We administer the Watershed Improvement Program’s multiple grant programs as well as provide information on available funding opportunities in California’s Sierra Nevada-Cascade region.

SNC Grant Program

Under the Watershed Improvement Program, we issue grants to public agencies, nonprofits, and eligible tribes for projects that support wildfire recovery, forest and watershed health, strategic land conservation, vibrant recreation and tourism, and resilient communities.

“The projects that we fund throughout our service area are developed by our on the ground partners with the assistance of local Sierra Nevada Conservancy staff. Our holistic approach means that a lot of our grants address urgent local needs, like reducing the risk of damaging wildfire, while advancing state priorities to reduce greenhouse gas emission, improve habitat, and protect water supply infrastructure.”
