How is SPAP different than CIP?
- Accepted criteria and a scoring matrix are used to establish project eligibility
- Standard (non-negotiable) IGAs are used
- Projects are expected to be completed within two years or less
- District financial contributions are capped
What type of projects are eligible?
A scoring matrix is designed to apply objective criteria prioritizing projects that:
- Address higher frequency, smaller flooding events
- Address road flooding that restricts access to critical facilities
- Are at a higher level of design
- Have agency property rights in place
What about funding?
The District contribution is limited to 75% of the design and construction costs of flood control elements of an eligible project, not to exceed $1M.
Project costs associated with property acquisition, utility relocations, permitting, construction management, materials testing, survey work and operations/maintenance are the Agency's sole responsibility.
The District may pay 50% of its cost share contribution upon the Agency’s award of a construction contract for the project and the remainder upon completion of construction.
How do I submit a project?
Agencies may submit proposals for project partnerships under the SPAP at any time by completing the Small Project Assistance Program Scoring Matrix
