San Francisco (SF) Environment - San Francisco Carbon Fund
01/17/20 5:00 PM
Grants of up to $50,000 to California schools and nonprofit organizations for projects that help the environment and enhance the quality of life for residents in eligible regions. Funding is intended to address the affects of carbon emissions, increase green spaces and trees, improve habitats, and lessen the amount of energy used in wastewater treatment. All project sites must be within the City and County of San Francisco.
The Department is prioritizing greening projects in neighborhoods that have been underserved by the SF Carbon Fund and have been identified as being at greater risk of heat impacts than other parts of the city—Chinatown, the Tenderloin, and South of Market.
The Department is currently seeking projects that sequester and mitigate carbon emissions through increasing the number of healthy trees and green space and decreasing the amount of energy needed to treat the City’s wastewater by improving habitats.
Since the goal of the SF Carbon Fund is to achieve permanent carbon savings, the bulk of funding (at least 70%) should go to capital improvements such as trees, plants, pavement removal, etc.
Eligible project types include:
Co-benefits of SF Carbon Fund projects support the City’s long-term climate and resiliency goals—supporting health and well-being by reducing urban heat island impacts and flooding risks, helping small businesses thrive, expanding the production of locally grown food, increasing neighborhood walkability, providing equitable access to green space, restoring biodiversity, and amplifying community action.
Priority will be given to projects in neighborhoods that have been underserved by the SF Carbon Fund and will be more impacted by heat episodes than other parts of the City as identified in the San Francisco’s heat vulnerability reports, available at https://sfgov.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=093e26ddb26a4e3180fa1e35158858bf.
