Welcome

Welcome to the Arizona Water Protection Fund, a competitive State grant program that provides funding for the development and implementation of measures to protect water of sufficient quality and quantity to maintain, enhance and restore rivers, streams and riparian habitat, including projects that benefit fish and wildlife that are dependent on these important resources. 


Corona Virus (COVID-19)
Arizona Water Protection Fund  is continuing to closely monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). CDC and ADHS have not recommended the closure of offices, but are recommending telework and other alternatives, when available, to minimize exposure risk to staff and customers. We remain open for business and ready to serve the people of Arizona. For additional information about continuing operations please visit: https://new.azwater.gov/covid-19.
