Webinar: Updating our Project Selection Criteria, June 21
The Coastal Conservancy is updating its project selection criteria and we are asking for public comments on the proposed new criteria. The draft proposed criteria are here.
There will be a webinar to discuss the proposed criteria on June 21 at 1:00 pm PST, to register, click here.
Comments are due by July 1, 2021.
The Conservancy has used project selection criteria for the past twenty years to communicate priorities to potential applicants and project partners, to evaluate grant applications, and to prioritize projects for funding. The current criteria can be found here.
This updating process is in response to the JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Guidelines adopted by the Conservancy Board in September of last year. The new project selection criteria will reflect the JEDI Guidelines that address funding programs, meaningful engagement and working with California’s tribes. The update is also an opportunity to align the criteria related to climate change with current state policy and guidance.
