California State Coastal Conservancy
Grants of up to $50,000 to California nonprofit organizations, tribes, and agencies for programs that improve accessibility to local coasts. Funding is intended to help local residents benefit from coastlines across the State. Priority will be given to programs targeting communities that face challenges or barriers to accessing or enjoying the coast (“ETC Priority Communities”).
ETC Priority Communities may include but are not limited to lower-income individuals and households, people with disabilities, people of color, immigrant communities, foster youth, and others.
Projects should also meet one or more of the following priorities:
Eligible Project Locations: Projects must involve visiting the coast of California or the shore of San Francisco Bay. The Conservancy is very interested in supporting programs that bring participants to the coast from throughout the state.
Eligible Projects: Eligible projects include a wide range of programs and activities that will help to bring more people to the coast and/or enhance their experience at the coast. At least 50% of participants served by the grant must be from communities who face barriers accessing the coast.
