Explore the Coast Grant

March 05, 2018 0:00am to April 16, 2018 0:00am

Explore the Coast grants fund a wide range of programs that bring people to the coast. Several projects fund transportation for school groups from inland areas to the ocean or San Francisco Bay, particularly people from underserved communities and those with disabilities who otherwise have fewer opportunities to visit the coast. Many projects provide environmental education about the ocean, coast, and San Francisco Bay to K-12 students, targeting schools in low-income communities. This grant program seeks to fund projects that meet one or more of the following priorities:

  1. Provides a coastal experience for people that may face challenges getting to or enjoying the coast (such as lower-income people, people with disabilities, English as a Second Language (ESL) communities, students from Title 1 schools or others).

  2. Creates opportunities for people to visit the coast for the first time.

  3. Provides a valuable recreational, environmental, cultural, or historic learning experience.

  4. Increases stewardship of coastal resources.
