Timeline for Round 3 RFP

The Restoration Authority Board will make funding decisions at public meetings based on its enabling legislation and the requirements of Measure AA. The Board may fund projects to protect and restore San Francisco Bay for future generations by (1) improving water quality by reducing pollution and trash and engaging in restoration activities; (2) restoring, monitoring and maintaining habitat for fish, birds and wildlife; (3) using natural habitats to protect communities from floods; and (4) increasing shoreline access and encouraging public participation in protecting the Bay's health.

The Restoration Authority achieves its mission through awarding grants to partner organizations to undertake projects that further its goals.

The Authority is particularly interested in supporting projects that address equity and include benefits to economically disadvantaged communities through meaningful community engagement, as described in the State Coastal Conservancy's Tips for Meaningful Engagement document.
