Grants Due for Shoreline Protection and Restoration
San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority, Measure AA
The San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority (SFBRA) released its annual call for proposals to provide approximately $25M in Measure AA grant funds for shoreline projects that will protect and restore San Francisco Bay by: reducing trash, pollution, and harmful toxins; improving water quality; restoring habitat for fish, birds, and wildlife; protecting communities from floods; and increasing shoreline public access and recreational areas.
SFBRA gives priority to projects that:
- leverage other funding sources and public/private partnerships;
- benefit economically-disadvantaged communities;
- include local employment opportunities;
- provide nature-based flood protection for critical infrastructure;
- engage youth; and
- include plans for monitoring and maintenance.
Project concepts can be submitted in a variety of phases, including: planning, design, environmental studies, permitting, construction, monitoring, operation, and maintenance. In addition, an acquisition may be considered an eligible project.
Proposals are due to SFBRA by November 26, 2018, 5:00 PM PST.
