The planning, design, permitting, and/or construction of projects in the Tijuana River Watershed that support the Tijuana River Border Pollution Control Project.
The Coastal Conservancy is a state agency, established in 1976, to work proactively with local communities to implement multi-benefit projects that protect and enhance coastal resources. The Conservancy’s enabling legislation is Division 21 of the Public Resources Code, which can be found here. Division 21 authorizes the Conservancy to undertake projects and award grants to achieve the goals set forth in Division 21. The Conservancy works along the entire length of California’s coast, within the watersheds of rivers and streams that extend inland from the coast, and throughout the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 (“Prop 68”) was approved by voters in June 2018. Prop 68 is codified as Division 45 of the Public Resources Code, Chapters 1-13, Sections 80000-80173. The purposes of Prop 68 include creating parks, enhancing river parkways, and protecting coastal forests and wetlands. Prop 68 also provides funding for outdoor access, lower cost coastal accommodations and climate adaptation. The Conservancy approved Proposition 68 Grant Guidelines in December 2018 and they can be found on our website here. These approved grant guidelines explain the funding priorities, project requirements, and project selection criteria for all Proposition 68 funds managed by the Conservancy, including the current solicitation.
Through Proposition 68, the Conservancy announces the availability of grant funds for the planning, design, permitting, and/or construction of projects in the Tijuana River Watershed that support the Tijuana River Border Pollution Control Project.
Conservancy staff are now soliciting pre-proposals for projects to be recommended for funding with the Proposition 68 appropriation for the Tijuana River Valley. For the current solicitation, the Conservancy has a total of $12,000,000 available: $8,813,000 for projects located in or benefiting Severely Disadvantaged Communities and $3,187,000 available for all other projects. Severely Disadvantaged Communities are defined as communities with a median household income less than 60% of the statewide average – see the Conservancy Proposition 68 Guidelines for more information.
Pre-proposals are due by midnight on Thursday, October 15, 2020. To attend a webinar about this funding source on September 2 at 1:00, register here.
