For the 2009 Fall/Winter Grant Cycle, CCG is pleased to announce funding up to $400,000 to groups applying to implement projects that directly engage residents and businesses in creating green spaces, gathering places, public art, and other neighborhood amenities by featuring and applying ecologically friendly amenities and practices.
Through a partnership with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Urban Watershed Management Program, CCG announces additional funding up to $100,000 specifically to support projects implementing green storm water management practices, also known as Low Impact Design (LID). The grants are based on the idea that small individual actions by watershed stewards add up to large benefits for San Francisco's watersheds and sewer infrastructure. CCG and SFPUC hope that this partnership will encourage groups to apply for funding to implement LID projects in their neighborhoods. The grants would support the planning, design, construction and maintenance of storm water management.
