How we are funded

Revenues to operate and maintain the District are raised through a special benefit assessment on properties in Natomas who benefit from the flood protection provided by our efforts. The assessment appears on the annual Sacramento County property tax bill as a direct levy and is designated “RD 1000”. The amount of the assessment is determined by the property's use, size, and location in the Natomas Basin. A “typical” single-family residential lot pays approximately $25 per year for the services we provide.
