The RCO's Competitive Process

The RCO's award winning evaluation process ensures only the best projects are funded.  Local, state, and tribal agencies apply to the RCO for WWRP grants.  Independent experts rank the applications based on criteria such as the benefits to the public, level of threat to the property, or presence of threatened or endangered species.  The Governor and Legislature set the funding level and approve the project list.
