The Wildlife Conservation Board’s 2021 Proposal Solicitation Notice (PSN) (PDF) for the Stream Flow Enhancement Program is now available. Under this Solicitation, approximately $15 million is anticipated to be available for award through Proposition 1. The primary focus is on enhancing flow in streams that support anadromous fish; support special status, threatened, endangered, or at-risk species; and/or provide resilience to climate change. Enhanced stream flow is defined as a change in the amount, timing, and/or quality of the water flowing down a stream, or a portion of a stream, to benefit fish and wildlife.

In addition, priorities of the 2021 Stream Flow Enhancement Program solicitation will be to support projects that:

  • Directly result in meaningful increases in the availability and/or quality of water in streams such as through the acquisition or long-term dedication of water rights.
  • Are located in southern California, though projects located in other regions will also be accepted.
  • Evaluate stream flow conditions and stream responses to previous Stream Flow Enhancement Program projects.
  • Are consistent with the objectives and actions outlined in the California Water Action Plan.

Concept Proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, on October 18, 2021. WCB will then invite select applicants to submit full proposals. Please see the Program page to access the Concept Proposal application form. For questions, contact the Stream Flow Enhancement Program at
