South Platte Water Supply Reserve Account Grants

The Water Supply Reserve Account (WSRA) provides grants and loans to assist Colorado water users in addressing their critical water supply issues and interests. 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.

There are two types of WSRA grants available: Basin and Statewide.
