Current Grant Opportunities
The Coastal Conservancy has a variety of grant programs, including ongoing grant opportunities and grant rounds with deadlines. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Conservancy staff prior to submitting an application. For more information on how to apply for specific grant programs, please read the solicitation for each grant program below. The Conservancy also accepts pre-proposals on a continuous basis. For information, please visit the Grant Application Page.
The purposes of Prop 68 include creating parks, enhancing river parkways, and protecting coastal forests and wetlands. Prop 68 also provides funding for outdoor access, lower cost coastal accommodations and climate adaptation. For most Prop 68 grants, the Conservancy will use a pre-proposal process. Pre-proposals will be accepted on an ongoing basis. For the fiscal year of July 2019 to June 2020, the only available funds from Proposition 68 are for overnight coastal accommodations, coastal redwood forests, and a variety of San Francisco Bay projects (for the SF Bay Program, please watch this space for notices of when wetlands-related or “climate ready program”-related pre-proposals will be accepted).
