Grants to California nonprofits, merchant associations, community groups, schools, and community benefit district organizations in eligible locations for capital projects that improve eligible neighborhoods. Funding is intended to support projects that engage local businesses and residents in creating green spaces, gathering places, gardens, mini-parks, public art, and other neighborhood amenities that enhance recreation and open space needs. The Eastern Neighborhoods Grant is specifically for projects located within the boundaries of the Eastern Neighborhoods (EN) Area Plan of San Francisco.

They are only to be used on capital projects as opposed to maintenance and programming. Projects eligible for this program should be focused on streetscape, public realm, recreation, and public open space improvements on city-owned property only.
