We want to fund your ideas for long term drought resilience In 2023, we are supporting over 30 projects around the state. Our long-term goal is to identify practices that keep farms and ranches profitable during drought, and scale-up those projects. 

If you have any questions about the application or projects you may contact the following:


Greg Peterson

Colorado Ag Water Alliance

(720) 244-4629


Phil Brink

(303) 475-3453

Request for Proposals: 2024 Projects

Successful projects will help test concepts and collect data that can demonstrate the ability to either reduce water use and/or increase long-term resilience to reduced water supplies. Current projects range from $2,000 to $30,000. We do not have a match requirement, but matching funds will make your project more competitive. We are not interested in funding general irrigation efficiency improvements like installing sprinklers, drip irrigation, or piping/lining ditches.

Applicants must meet with us to discuss their project in order to be considered for funding.

Deadline: December 1st

Application available here
