The NCRP, the North Coast IRWM group, is an inclusive, transparent, stakeholder driven coalition – one of the few regional integrated planning programs in California which is led by locally elected Tribal and county government officials. NCRP leaders, staff, project proponents and stakeholders work collaboratively on water, natural resource, and energy challenges to reduce conflicts, integrate federal, state, regional and local priorities and identify and seek funding for the region’s highest priority multi-benefit projects.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to receive a presentation on the statewide IRWM program, the NCRP, the NCRP Tribal Representative process, technical assistance being offered as part of the  ‘Disadvantaged and Tribal Involvement (DACTI) Program’ or the new Regional Forest and Fire Capacity (RFFC) program.
