Resources for Current Grantees

Information that may be useful to organizations that have received a grant from the Coastal Conservancy.

Sample Resolution

Grant recipients are required to have their governing board adopt a resolution providing authority for the organization to enter into the Conservancy’s grant agreement. These sample resolutions can be used by grantees as a draft in developing their resolution:

Work Program

For most projects other than acquisitions, the grantee will be required to prepare a Work Program, including budget and schedule that must be approved by the Conservancy before the Conservancy will approve the disbursement of any funds to the grantee. The documents  linked below provide a guide for developing work programs. Note that complicated project budgets should be prepared and presented in Excel (or another spreadsheet program) rather than in a Word document.

Overhead and Budget Policies

Acknowledgement Plans

As part of a grant agreement with the State Coastal Conservancy, we require that grantees publicly acknowledge the Conservancy’s funding for their project and/or program.  Prior to beginning the project, grantees must submit a plan to their project manager for acknowledgment of Conservancy support and, in the case of capital projects, the installation of signs at the project site.

Invoicing

Invoices submitted to the Conservancy for payment must be mailed in to:

Attn: Contracts

And must include the following:
