Community Challenge Grant Program
The Community Challenge Grant Program (CCG) provides funding that build strong San Francisco neighborhoods and facilitates community participation, stewardship and responsibility. CCG helps facilitate community-led transformation efforts that enhance beautification projects that build community.
The goals of CCG are to do the following:
- To promote vibrant physical improvements and greening of public spaces.
- To engage residents and businesses in creating welcoming places for community building.
- To feature ecologically friendly amenities and practices.
The grants fund community-driven initiatives that beautify the neighborhood, enhance public spaces in the community, and/or restore the natural ecology of an area. The CG is interested in projects where greening is a meaningful component. Funding supports projects that present thoughtful, well-planned strategies for:
- Creating physical improvements to public spaces
- Planting native species
- Planting or improving community gardens, gathering or open space areas
- Making public spaces more accessible and inviting
