SF Bay Restoration Authority first request for proposals due November 15
On June 7th 2016, voters in the nine Bay Area counties passed measure AA, continuing to demonstrate overwhelming regional care about and support for restoring San Francisco Bay.  The $12 annual parcel tax will provide approximately $25 million every year, or $500 million over twenty years, to fund shoreline projects that will protect and restore the Bay by:
  • reducing trash, pollution and harmful toxins;
  • improving water quality;
  • restoring habitat for fish, birds, and other wildlife;
  • protecting communities from floods; and
  • increasing shoreline public access and recreational areas
On September 15 the Authority announced its first request for proposals along with grant application information both of which are now available on their website.  An optional webinar will be held on October 4 from 2-3 pm – to learn more about this or register visit here.
