Grants to this Grantee
for the Bay Area Livable Communities Initiative  
This grant would support a regranting program of the San Francisco Foundation called the Great Communities Collaborative. The Collaborative works to ensure that the $12 billion in public infrastructure funds being spent on mass transit upgrades and expansions in the Bay Area over the next decade are well spent. Specifically, the group seeks to deliver reductions in car and truck pollution and creation of transit station areas with a mix of jobs, housing, and commercial development that reduces sprawl in the region and provides access to housing and jobs for people who cannot afford a car.
