The Small Reclamation Projects Act (SRPA) and its amendments were enacted to encourage State and local participation with the Federal government in water resources development. A key element of the SRPA program is the sharing of construction cost funding by the United States and the non-Federal partner. This paper addresses SRPA cost-sharing requirements, maximum project costs, maximum loan amounts, provisions for grants, and loan repayment requirements. One funded and two proposed wastewater reuse projects in California are described with specific Federal/non-Federal funding arrangements being highlighted.
