On April 11, the Governing Board of the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority approved eight grants totaling nearly $18 million for wetland restoration in the Bay funded by Measure AA, the San Francisco Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure. The eight grants approved provide multiple benefits, and prioritize nature-based solutions to create flood protection and public access, in addition to the primary aim of restoring habitat and natural processes.
Full details on each project can be found in the meeting agenda posted here: http://sfbayrestore.org/packets/2018-04-11/Agenda.htm.
The next RFP will be announced in Fall 2018; federal, state, and local agencies; tribal governments; nonprofit organizations; and owners or operators of shoreline parcels in the San Francisco Bay Area, excluding the Delta primary zone are encouraged to apply!
