Urban grant Program

The 2020 Urban Grant Program cycle is open and we are accepting applications. Please follow the application process linked below under Grant Materials. If you have any questions, please reach out to our Grants Administrator.

Due to the current public health crisis, the Open Space Authority is extending the Urban Grant Program deadline from May 1, 2020 to July 1, 2020.

The Open Space Authority Urban Grant Program is funded by Measure Q.  Passed in 2014, Measure Q generates approximately $7.9M per year and up to 25% can be allocated for the Urban Grant Program.

To learn more about past grantees and projects, please visit our Urban Success Stories or read about their inspiring stories on our blog.
