Feasibility Study Grants


The Oregon Water Resources Commission awarded $814,052 in grants to fund seven project study proposals for the 2021 cycle of Feasibility Study Grants.

The annual deadline for Feasibility Study Grants is typically in the fall of each year. The application deadline for the 2022 funding cycle will be posted soon.


Feasibility Study Grants fund qualifying costs of studies to evaluate the feasibility of developing water conservation, reuse, and storage projects. This competitive funding opportunity helps individuals and communities investigate whether a project is worth pursuing. Grants are offered on an annual basis, with applications due each fall. Grants require a 50% cost match of the total cost of the feasibility study, up to $500,000. Any local government, Indian tribe, or person may apply for funding.

Available Funding

The Department currently has approximately $900,000 in funding for eligible Feasibility Study Grants.
