The Health Promotion and Community Wellness Bureau received California Kids' Plates grants in 2000 and 2001 to develop educational and promotional materials on swimming pool safety. We also provide local building inspectors with information about the Swimming Pool Safety Act of 1997.
This page is for information and resources only. Currently, the Health Promotion and Community Wellness Bureau does not have funding for drowning prevention services.
