Proposition 1 Grant Round – Bay Area Urban Greening Projects

The Conservancy announces a new Proposition 1 Grant Solicitation focused on multi-benefit urban greening projects in the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area.  Through this grant round the Conservancy seeks to support urban greening projects that meaningfully enhance the ecological function of bay area creeks, watershed and wetlands. These are projects that provide at least two of the following benefits: increase groundwater recharge, enhance the natural flow of waterways, improve water quality, improve urban watershed health, create or enhance public green space, or expand urban forests. The Conservancy seeks to support urban greening projects which are layered with other community public benefits consistent with the Conservancy’s mandate and authorities.
