The Drainage Reuse Grant Program provides funds to local public agencies, including public universities, in the state of California for research and/or programs that resolve agricultural subsurface drainage water issues. The program encourages development of methods of using subsurface drainage, reducing its toxic elements, and concentrating, separating and utilizing its salts. Grant applications for the 2020 Drainage Reuse Grant Program are due no later than Thursday, May 7, 2020 by 5:00 p.m.
