Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Greenbelt Alliance works to protect open space and promote livable communities in the San Francisco Bay Area by focusing on how the region handles growth. Their goal is to fully protect the Bay Area’s 3.6 million-acre greenbelt and provide 830,000 new homes in the next 20 years within existing communities. They hope to accomplish this by creating and engaging collaborative networks, crafting local-level coalitions to educate and engage residents, and providing decision makers with useful information to help develop the rules that govern growth and support land conservation and low-carbon development outcomes.
for the Bay Area Open Spaces project  
Greenbelt Alliance works to protect open space and promote livable communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their work aims to ensure the region continues to provide clean air and water, locally grown food, and affordable housing in transit-friendly healthy communities, particularly for the region’s most disadvantaged populations. This grant will specifically support collaboration among key conservation players in the Bay Area to help protect the 3.6 million-acre greenbelt of natural and agricultural lands that provides food, parks, and an urban boundary that prevents sprawl.
