The Small Communities Flood Risk Reduction Program (SCFRRP) is a program to reduce flood risk for small communities protected by State Plan of Flood Control facilities. Small communities are defined in the State’s Central Valley Flood Protection Plan as developed areas with between 200 and 10,000 residents.
The program is multi-phased. In the first phase, the State fully funds a feasibility study that evaluates structural and nonstructural flood risk reduction projects. A second competitive funding phase will pay fifty percent of project design and implementation. Within the Mid & Upper Sacramento River region, the following communities are working on feasibility studies under the program: Colusa, Princeton, Grimes, Vina, Gerber, Nord, Durham and Richvale. Project notices and documents will be posted on this page by community as they become available.
