|One important way the district works in partnership with the community is to provide grants to organizations and groups whose goals align with the district's mission. The Santa Clara Valley Water District’s grants programs, as
well as partnerships through joint use and joint trail agreements, combined with other public and private funding, has helped fund 92 projects totaling over $16.7 million since 2000.
