Work Plans and Grant Agreements
- The MCWD Board of Managers, with input from MCWD staff and the Citizen Advisory Committee, chooses projects for funding based on the criteria above. Once the funding awards have been determined, a notification of project funding will be sent out.
- A work plan must be submitted and approved by staff, at which time a grant agreement will be written and sent out, signed, and returned to the MCWD.
- Applicant must provide signed agreements within 180 days of notification that their project is funded. Failure to complete an approved work plan and enter into an agreement to do the work will result in forfeiture of grant dollars, which will be returned to the fund for allocation in the following grant cycle.
- Award of Fund - Once the fiscal agent and the MCWD execute a notarized agreement, applicants will receive a check for 90% of the awarded amount. The final 10% will be awarded after completion of the final report according to the requirements in the Grant Agreement. Some projects may need MCWD permits and maintenance agreements to be recorded with the appropriate county depending on the type of project.
Requests for amendments to project budgets, work plans, or grant agreements will be handled by staff on a case-by-case basis. Requests to substantially deviate from the spirit and outcomes of the original proposal must be reviewed by the review panel, and may require MCWD Board approval.
