The San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority is responsible for allocating funds raised by voter-approved Measure AA, the 2016 San Francisco Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure.
Each year, the Authority has about $25 million in grant funding available for projects that protect and restore San Francisco Bay by: reducing trash, pollution and harmful toxins; improving water quality; restoring habitat for fish, birds, and wildlife; protecting communities from floods; and increasing shoreline public access and recreational areas.
Today, the Authority has allocated over $125 million in grants to shoreline restoration projects around the Bay and leveraged an additional $175 million. It will allocate another $375 million in Measure AA funding over the next 15 years. Most Measure AA funds are awarded through annual competitive grant rounds.
