Proposition 68 Grant Guidelines
Funds from Prop 68 will be used to support the priorities of all of the OPC’s program areas for the next several years. OPC adopted the Prop 68 Grant Guidelines at their May 23, 2019 meeting. For information on the Grant Guidelines adoption, including the staff recommendation and comments received on the draft grant guidelines, please see item 5 on the OPC meeting page.
The Grant Guidelines provide an overview of the purpose of Prop 68 funds, which projects and applicants will be eligible to receive funds, OPC’s competitive and discretionary grant programs, proposed scoring criteria to assess projects, and requirements for future grantees.
OPC staff provided the Draft Grant Guidelines for public comment in January and February 2019. During the public comment period, OPC staff held workshops (PDF) in Oakland, San Diego, Eureka, Salinas, and Santa Monica – in addition to an online webinar – to present the Draft Grant Guidelines to the public and receive comments. The presentation slides (PDF)from the workshops and webinar are available.
