LOWER GUNNISON PROJECT (LGP) PARTNER UPDATE: October 10, 2016
I. 2017 Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) for Lower Gunnison
On September 19th, the Colorado River District submitted a full RCPP proposal to NRCS on behalf of Lower Gunnison Partners to expand our agricultural water use efficiency improvement efforts. If awarded, the Lower Gunnison focus areas will have access to another $20 million of combined funding for on- and off-farm infrastructure. The RCPP funding announcement indicates that 2017 awards will be made sometime after the New Year. We wish to sincerely thank all of our many project partners; we are very appreciative to have their support.
