The Santa Clara River Watershed Area is located in northwest Los Angeles County. The watershed area drains west into Ventura County, where it eventually empties into the Pacific Ocean. The main watercourse through this watershed area is the Santa Clara River, which originates in the San Gabriel Mountains. Municipalities that fall within the boundaries of this Watershed Area are Los Angeles County and Santa Clarita.

The Santa Clara River Watershed Area is estimated to receive up to $5.85 million annually to fund regional projects and programs.

Regional Program funds for the Watershed Area are programmed by the Watershed Area Steering Committee  comprised of local stakeholders from agencies, municipalities, and community members from within the Watershed Area. The Steering Committee will meet regularly to develop funding plans and recommendations to provide water quality, water supply, and community enhancement benefits to the region. Available meeting details are below.
