Pre-Planning and Legal Entity Formation Assistance Program We have posted the results of the initial 2013 Pre-Planning Application review and ranking.  Follow this link for the list:  Pre-Planning and Legal Entity Formation Assistance Program 

SDWSRF Consolidation Incentive - To promote consolidation as a cost-effective solution to water systems that don't meet safe drinking water standards, we are providing an incentive to encourage larger systems to consolidate nearby noncompliant systems. The restructured larger system will receive the opportunity for SDWSRF funding for a low ranking, otherwise non-fundable project. For more details, click here.

DIR has further information on how to comply with the new labor compliance and monitoring requirements. For more information and any questions you have regarding labor compliance and monitoring, please contact DIR at CMU@dir.ca.gov or go to DIR's Labor Compliance Programs' website at http://www.dir.ca.gov/lcp.asp.
