AMENDMENT TO THE SMALL COMMUNITY GRANT PROJECT PRIORITY LIST
The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) adopted Resolution
No. 97-046 on May 14, 1997 approving the Small Community Grant (SCG) Project Priority List. Resolve No. 3 directed the Division of Clean Water Programs (DCWP) to bring back to the SWRCB for consideration, any Priority Class A and B projects submitting data or an income survey showing that their 1996 Median Household Income (MHI) is less than $32,000.
The DCWP has received new MHI documentation from one community, the Hilmar Water District (District). The new documentation shows that the District's 1996 MHI is estimated to be $30,103. The District is a Priority Class B project, but was not on the adopted Project Priority List because its 1996 MHI based on the 1990 Census information was above $32,000. The DCWP proposes that the SWRCB add this project to the SCG Project Priority List. A copy of the Priority List with the Hilmar Water District Project highlighted is attached.
In addition, the DCWP has found a few minor errors in the original SCG Priority List adopted on May 14, 1997. Correction of these errors is also highlighted on the list.
Should the SWRCB amend the SCG Project Priority List by adding the Hilmar Water District to the list?
The addition of the Hilmar Water District Project to compete for the $30 million in funding available will have a negligible impact on the workload of the DCWP and can be accomplished within DCWP's existing budget resources for this program.
RWQCB IMPACT: None
That the SWRCB adopt a resolution approving the addition of the Hilmar Water District to the SCG Project Priority List.
1. The State Water Resources Control Board adopted the Small Community Grant Project Priority List on May 14, 1997;

3. The Division of Clean Water Programs has received and approved documentation that the 1996 Median Household Income for the Hilmar Water District is less than $32,000, making the project eligible for placement on the SCG Project Priority List.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
