Description: The Coastal Conservancy’s mission is to work with others to preserve, protect, and restore the resources of the California coast, ocean, and the San Francisco Bay Area. The Conservancy was created out of recognition that some of California’s goals for coastal management require implementation of important projects to conserve land, restore habitat, or build trails. The Conservancy works along the entire length of California’s coast and within the watersheds of rivers and streams that extend inland from the coast. The Coastal Conservancy also works throughout the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area and the entire Santa Ana River watershed.

The Conservancy provides technical assistance and grant funding to local communities, nonprofit organizations, other government agencies, businesses, and private landowners to implement multi-benefit projects that:

  • protect the natural and scenic beauty of the coast
  • enhance wildlife habitat
  • help the public to get to and enjoy beaches and parklands
  • keep farmland and timberlands in production
  • improve water quality
  • revitalize working waterfronts
  • prepare communities for the impacts of climate change
  • sequester carbon or reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Prospective applicants must discuss their projects with Conservancy staff prior to completing or submitting this application.  Please contact the appropriate Program Manager from the list below, listed from North to South:
