The Santa Clara Valley District (District) manages an integrated water resources system that includes the supply of clean, safe water, flood protection and stewardship of streams on behalf of Santa Clara County’s 1.9 million residents. The District’s mission is to provide Silicon Valley safe, clean water for a healthy life, environment, and economy.

The Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program (Safe, Clean Water) is a 15-year strategy to ensure uninterrupted water resources services in Santa Clara County. In November 2012, county voters approved Safe, Clean Water ballot measure with an overwhelming majority of nearly 74%. The countywide special parcel tax sunsets on June 30, 2028. The grants program is being implemented to address key performance indicators associated with priorities identified in the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program.

The Safe, Clean Water Pilot Mini-Grants Program will close applications on June 30, 2018. Staff will use the time to evaluate the program’s pilot year and provide recommendations to the Board of Directors for the program moving forward. In the meantime, if you have been involved with the mini-grants program, as a grantee, potential applicant, or participated in a mini-grant funded program/project, please assist us in completing a short survey.

Please check back at the end of August to learn more about the next steps of the mini-grants program.
