Introduction

On August 1, 2016, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) released the Final Request for Proposals for the Disadvantaged Community Involvement Program (DACIP). DWR designated $9.8 million of Proposition 1 grant funding for the Los Angeles - Ventura Funding Area.

The purpose of the DACIP is to involve disadvantaged communities and economically distressed areas in the Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) planning process. The Program seeks to increase understanding of water needs in these areas and develop long term solutions to address these needs including developing projects.

Los Angeles - Ventura IRWM Funding Area

There are three IRWMs within the Los Angeles-Ventura Funding Area: the Upper Santa Clara River IRWM, the Watersheds Coalition of Ventura County IRWM and the Greater Los Angeles County IRWM. This website is for the Greater Los Angeles County IRWM. For information on the Watersheds Coalition for Ventura County and Upper Santa Clara River IRWMs, please see links below.

Structure of the DACIP for the Los Angeles - Ventura Funding Area

The Los Angeles County Flood Control District (LACFCD) is the Chair of the Greater Los Angeles County (GLAC) IRWM. The LACFCD has been selected as the applicant for the DACIP, representing all three IRWMs. The LACFCD will also serve as the Grant Administrator.

Development of the DACIP Proposal will be the responsibility of a newly formed DACIP Committee. The DACIP Committee consists of two representatives from each of the three IRWMs, for a total of six members. The GLAC IRWM's representatives on the DACIP Committee are the Chair of the GLAC IRWM DAC Committee, and a representative from LACFCD.

Development of the scope of work for the DACIP will be largely based on input and recommendations from community based organizations, NGOs, public agencies, consultants, and other stakeholders.

The GLAC IRWM maintains a list of consultants to provide as-needed support services for their IRWM program. This contract was last updated in September 2016. The contract covers activities including grant application preparation, grant administration support, research and studies for IRWM projects, updating the GLAC IRWM Plan, outreach, regional coordination and support for the DACIP, and other services. Consultants under contract on the as-needed list are contacted and issued task orders based on the needs of the GLAC IRWM.

The GLAC IRWM anticipates issuing a task order to one of these firms to oversee the implementation of the DACIP Program. It is expected that the firm chosen will be directed to work with and where possible utilize the services of community based organizations, NGOs, public agencies, specialty consultants, and other stakeholders to implement the program.
