Proposition 1 Grants

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.

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.

The grant application is posted here.

The powerpoint from the San Francisco Bay Area urban greening webinar is posted here.

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.
