Priority Conservation Area Grants – Call for Proposals
The State Coastal Conservancy, in cooperation with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), is pleased to issue a call for proposals focused on the Bay Area’s Priority Conservation Areas (PCA) designated under Plan Bay Area 2040. Information on the program is available at: https://abag.ca.gov/priority/conservation/index.html, and the grant guidelines are here: https://abag.ca.gov/priority/conservation/pdfs/2019_PCA_Guidelines.pdf
The PCA Grant Program provides funding to cities, counties, park districts, utility districts and other agencies and non-profits to acquire, enhance, or improve areas designated as conservation priorities. Maps of PCAs can be found here: https://abag.ca.gov/priority/conservation/maps.html
For this funding opportunity, projects must be located in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, or Santa Clara County. Multi-county projects are allowed and encouraged. The PCA Grant Program for the four North Bay counties (Marin, Napa, Solano, and Sonoma County) is managed separately from this call for projects by each county’s transportation authority.
There will be two workshops to provide prospective applicants with an overview of the PCA Program.
