Serving Bay Area Communities

Poor communities and neighborhoods frequently have fewer parks, lack equipment to take advantage of outdoor recreation, and are in need of more environmentally-friendly public transportation. With this in mind, the Environment Program makes a small number of multi-year grants to support regional organizations that partner with residents of these communities.
Through these grants, the Environment Program works to:
• Improve and expand urban parks.
• Support outdoor recreation programs for youth.
• Improve public transportation available to these communities.
The Environment Program accepts unsolicited Letters of Inquiry for its Serving Bay Area Communities grantmaking. For more information, please click here.
