SNC Proposition 84 Grants
The Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act was approved by voters in 2006. The SNC was allocated a total of $54 million of Proposition 84 funds for grant distribution and necessary administration of the grants. The SNC has distributed over $51 million dollars to more than 310 projects throughout the Sierra Nevada.
In December of 2013 the Sierra Nevada Conservancy Board authorized $1 million for Rim Fire Restoration efforts. Staff are currently working with the Stanislaus National Forest, the Yosemite Stanislaus Solutions Group, and other local interests to identify projects that will restore forest and watershed health in the Rim Fire burn area.
