The Washington Department of Ecology is accepting applications for Emergency Drought Funding. Projects eligible for funding must address drought hardships to agriculture or livestock, public water supplies, or fisheries and wildlife.

1. To be eligible for funding, one or more of the following must be partially or completely within the area of a drought declaration order by Ecology:
(a) The public water system’s service area.
(b) The geographic area where irrigated agriculture or livestock are located.
(c) The source of water, or the water body, that supplies water to the entity applying for funding.

2. The reduction in water supply caused by drought must cause, or will cause, undue hardship, as described under WAC 173-167 230.
