This online event will discuss available funding for Santa Cruz County property owners. RSVP Required.

The RCD is offering technical and/or financial assistance to address erosion and drainage issues on private properties and roads. With a focus on reducing sediment runoff to local waterways the RCD is providing one-on-one support to road associations, County Service Areas (CSA), and individual homeowners to identify erosion and drainage problems, recommend solutions, develop plans, secure permits if needed, and provide cost-share for the construction of improvements.  There is over $775,000 available in direct assistance for landowners to help cover that costs of designing, permitting, and constructing projects.

Examples of eligible projects include:

  • Installing or upgrading culverts
  • Improving road drainage
  • Applying rock to unpaved roads
  • Managing culvert outlets to minimize erosion
  • Landscaping with drainage swales
  • Infiltrating storm runoff onsite
  • Connecting large rain catchment systems to existing roof drains
  • Protecting streambanks and hillside to reduce erosion

This online informational meeting will discuss who is qualified, how to apply, how projects will be chosen, funding obligations and maintenance commitments for grant recipients.
