About the Partnership

The fund is a vital part of the Safe and Affordable Funding for Equity and Resilience (SAFER) program and promises $1.4 billion over 10 years for safe drinking water solutions for disadvantaged California communities. Now, CWC is partnering with ally organizations to prevent water shutoffs and ensure that water is affordable for all Californians, especially those 1.6 million households who are drowning $1 billion in water debt.
