Typical Process of Receiving San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority Grants

The typical sequence of activities for receiving San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority grants, from submitting a project application to submitting a final invoice, can be read here.


Board Resolution

Grant recipients are required to have their governing board adopt a resolution providing authority for the organization to enter into the Restoration Authority’s grant agreement. This resolution template 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 Authority 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.

Community Engagement

Community engagement increases the long-term success of most projects. The State Coastal Conservancy’s Tips for Meaningful Community Engagement can be found here.


Acknowledgement, Signage and Authority Logos

The Authority requires grantees to acknowledge its financial support of projects.  Guidance on preparing an acknowledgement plan as well as signage and logo-use instructions can be found below:

Project Labor Agreements

Restoration Authority grant agreements require a project labor agreement (PLA) for any construction project where (a) the total cost of the project exceeds $500,000, and (b) the Authority’s funding exceeds 10 percent of the total project cost. A PLA is an agreement between a project owner and a local building and construction trades council that sets forth the terms and conditions of employment on a construction project. A PLA provides assurances for workers regarding job conditions and assurances for project owners on timely completion.
