The Authority is pleased to introduce a new grant program, funded by Measure Q. This competitive grant program funds environmental education programs and youth engagement projects in one or more categories:
- Natural Resources
- Water and watersheds
- Nature's health benefits
The grants are open to Public Agencies, Schools and School Districts, and Nonprofits.
A 33% match is required, which can be met through in-kind services, supplies, or cash, or through matching funds from other sources.
Please note that the Open Space Authority’s Urban Open Space Grant Program
also includes funding for environmental education programs, though the grant amounts are higher than in that grant program.
The grant guidelines are currently being revised. The next grant cycle will be next fiscal year (July 2019 - June 2020). Please check back for updates or sign up for our mailing list
to be notified when the next grant cycle will open.
