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.
