We are pleased to inform you that the San Francisco Bay Water Quality Improvement Fund (SFBWQIF) FY 2020 RFA (also known as ‘request for proposals’) is now open. The RFA is soliciting proposals that will improve water quality and restore wetlands in San Francisco Bay and its watersheds. There is approximately $5.9 million available to support projects in the range of $500,000 to $2,000,000. Applicants must provide a minimum 50% non-federal match and projects must be within the nine Bay Area counties that drain to San Francisco Bay. Proposals must be submitted through Grants.gov on or before the proposal submission deadline of April 20, 2020 at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time.
You will find the RFA on our EPA website and on Grants.gov (see links below).
Please check our website for the date of a free webinar we will hold to provide a detailed review of the RFA and help answer your proposal submittal questions. Please forward this announcement to any other interested parties. If you would like your email taken off this mailing list, please let me know by emailing me back.
