SFEP Small and Micro Grants Program

In 2013, the San Francisco Estuary Partnership announced the launch of the Small and Micro Grants Program to help protect and improve watershed health around the San Francisco Estuary. The total amount available for 2013 was $50,000 for both small grants (up to $5,000) and micro-grants (up to $1,000).

SFEP awarded small grants to ten Bay Area entities, including local creek groups, non-profits, and special districts working in watersheds across the Bay Area.

This was the first round of awards for the Estuary Partnership’s Watershed Program, which designed the grant around two of its primary goals: 1) building support for community-based approaches to watershed protection and restoration; and 2) increasing watershed resilience and capacity to adapt to the effects of climate change. Recipients were selected based on several parameters including relevance to these goals, local support and capacity, sustainability, and originality.

Grants were awarded to the following projects (click on the project name for more information):
