The IPCP grant program is intended to provide cost share assistance to eligible entities to control and/or eradicate tamarisk (also known as salt cedar), Russian olive, or other riparian invasive phreatophytes that have degraded the state’s riparian areas, restricted channel capacity thereby increasing flood risk, and resulted in increased non-beneficial consumptive use of water. IPCP also incorporates funding for riparian re-vegetation/restoration after invasive removal.
