On February 11, 2021, the Bureau of Reclamation announced FY 2021 WaterSMART Drought Resiliency Grant program awards. The Bureau selected 18 projects which intend to help communities in the western United States prepare to and respond to drought. Selected projects also support President Biden’s Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, and focus on increasing reliability of water supplies, improved water management, and providing benefits to fish and wildlife.
In total, the Bureau awarded $15.4 million across seven states. TFG assisted with three of the winning projects, helping clients to secure $2,550,000.
