The Restoration Authority Board will make funding decisions at public meetings based on its enabling legislation and the requirements of Measure AA. The Board may fund projects to protect and restore San Francisco Bay for future generations by (1) improving water quality by reducing pollution and trash and engaging in restoration activities; (2) restoring, monitoring and maintaining habitat for fish, birds and wildlife; (3) using natural habitats to protect communities from floods; and (4) increasing shoreline access and encouraging public participation in protecting the Bay's health.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with Restoration Authority staff during the project solicitation period before submitting your application. Consultations are normally 30 minutes and via phone. To schedule your pre-proposal consultation, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
An optional webinar was held on October 18, 2018, please follow this link to access the webinar's Powerpoint Presentation.
Additional information on funding decisions, including project eligibility, eligible grantees, prioritization criteria, and the process for the review and approval of grants, can be found in the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority's Grant Program Guidelines.
