    What is the Water Supply Reserve Fund Grant (WSRF) Program?
    The WSRF Program provides grants and loans to assist Colorado water users in addressing their critical water supply issues and interests. The funds help eligible entities complete water activities, which may include competitive grants for: ­
    • Technical assistance regarding permitting, feasibility studies and environmental compliance; ­
    • Studies or analysis of structural, nonstructural, consumptive and nonconsumptive water needs, projects or activities; and ­
    • Structural and nonstructural water projects or activities.
Requests for funds from the Account must be approved by at least one of Colorado’s nine basin roundtables. The request is then forwarded to the CWCB to evaluate and make final funding decisions.
