The program makes grants to expand recreational and educational use of conservation lands and improve sustainability in the Coachella Valley.
Awards are made projects that enhance park facilities or recreational improvements that expand public access to conservation land or reduce environmental impacts that cause climate change. Applications are accepted on a continuous basis using a pre application form available from the Conservancy. Upon submission of the preapplication form, the applicant meets with Conservancy staff for a pre application consultation, after which the application can be submitted. Further details about the application procedure are available in the Proposition 68 Grant program Guidelines available on the Conservancy's website.
Projects that primarily serve several economically disadvantaged communities (SDAC) with median incomes of less than 60% of the statewide median receive priority; projects that serve disadvantaged communities with median incomes above 60% but less than 80% of the statewide median, or that serve areas that are underserved by outdoor recreational amenities, receive addition points in the scoring process.
