Greening San Diego Grant Program – Draft Grant Program Guidelines

For public review: The Greening San Diego Grant Program (Greening Program) provides funding for tree and vegetation planting projects and related green infrastructure to reduce and mitigate against Greenhouse Gasses (GHGs) and climate change. The Conservancy is interested in projects that contain a significant shade-tree planting component or to augment, expand, or better manage healthy urban, riparian and rural forests, parks and open space areas and provide multi-benefits.

The Greening Program Guidelines (Guidelines) establish the process the Conservancy will use to solicit concept proposals. Project proposals must be consistent with the Conservancy’s enabling legislation, its Strategic Plan and the Guidelines’ project selection criteria.
