TWDB offering webinar on agricultural water grants

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is hosting an Agricultural Water Conservation Grant Funding Webinar on Aug. 21, from 9:30–10:30 a.m. The Agricultural Water Conservation Program funds are normally made available on a competitive basis each year, according to TWDB, and this webinar will explain the application process and provide examples of typical funding categories as well as previously funded projects.

TWDB encourages staff from groundwater conservation districts, irrigation districts, river authorities, state agencies and state university systems to attend.

Linda Ruiz-McCall, TWDB education specialist, will host the webinar, and Cameron Turner, TWDB team lead for Agricultural Water Conservation Programs, will be the presenter. Turner will discuss the application process, explain how proposals are evaluated and offer a brief overview of the process of a typical grant project from initiation, negotiation, execution, through progress reporting and project completion.

Registration for the free webinar is required and available online.
