Grants to California nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for a range of programs to benefit local residents. Funding is intended for programs addressing public safety, support for artists, housing for veterans, and capacity building and outdoor activities for the American Indian/Indigenous Community. Programs must benefit San Francisco residents.

Similarly, the Mayor releases a list of amendments annually, known as “mayoral enhancements”.

  1. Coordination of Public Safety in District 4
  2. Public Safety Program in the Southeast Asian Community in District 6 and citywide
  3. Funding to Support Filipinx Performer/Artist Organization in District 6
