Regional Economy

The Delta Protection Commission promotes a robust regional economy – one that protects agriculture, natural resources, recreation and the cultural and historic values of the Delta.  The Commission’s Economic Sustainability Plan is the fundamental document for planning such an economy in the Delta, and is considered part of the Commission’s Strategic Plan.

Commission Activities

In addition to maintaining the Economic Sustainability Plan, the Commission engages in a variety of activities to advance the regional economy.  See below for more information on ongoing projects:

Delta Investment Fund

The Delta Investment Fund was created by the State Treasury as an account to receive federal, state, local and privately-sourced funds that can be used to pay for projects that advance regional economic sustainability.  First proposed in 2008 and adopted in the Delta Reform Act of 2009, the fund is administered by the Delta Protection Commission.
