The Rio Grande Water Fund provides funding for projects that accelerate landscape-scale restoration, primarily in ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forests. Funding is periodically available for thinning, controlled burns, stream restoration, post-fire watershed restoration, restoration planning, education and outreach, and monitoring.
Projects are solicited through a Request for Statements of Interest (RSI) process, and reviewed by a seven member Technical Review Panel established by the RGWF Executive Committee. Final Funding decisions are made by the Executive Committee. Through the RSI process, eight projects have been added to the Candidate List and six have received funding.
The Technical Panel may recommend that submitted projects not deemed eligible for immediate funding be added to the Candidate List, based on merit and the ability of the applicant to make required revisions and the approval of the Executive Committee.
A new RSI will be announced periodically on this website and by email through the Rio Grande Water Fund advisory board. Check back for current information and to see new projects as they are added to the Candidate List. A candidate project will remain on the list until funding is secured or the applicant withdraws it.
