New Proposition 1 Grant Round for Central Coast Projects, Deadline March 30

Conservancy Proposition 1 grants fund multi-benefit ecosystem and watershed protection and restoration projects. Priority project types include: water sustainability improvements, anadromous fish habitat enhancement, wetland restoration and urban greening. Applications in the most recent Proposal Solicitation are due March 30, 2018. This round is for projects in the central coast. The application has two parts: a cover sheet and a project description.

The Coastal Conservancy will offer three grant rounds per year.  Some solicitations will be open to all eligible projects, others will target specific Proposition 1 priorities identified in the Coastal Conservancy’s Strategic Plan. In September 2016, the Conservancy updated its Proposition 1 Grant Program Guidelines.

The powerpoint presentation from the past informational webinar is posted here.
