Environment Program Grantseekers

Poor communities and neighborhoods frequently have fewer parks, lack equipment to take advantage of outdoor recreation, and are in need of more environmentally-friendly public transportation. With this in mind, the Environment Program makes a small number of multi-year grants to support regional organizations that partner with residents of these communities.

Source reduction - General Mini-Grant Program for Alameda County

The Mini-Grant program is designed to provide small amounts of money, within a brief period of time, for a specific and limited purpose and open to all applicants, private firms, non-profit organizations, schools and individuals. The proposed project must be in the area of source reduction, reuse, recycling and market development. Funds may also be requested for educational programs that promote source reduction, reuse, recycling and buy recycled.

Drought Response Program

The California Conservation Corps can work with schools, public agencies, and commercial properties.

There are five CCC crews trained to assist with water conservation work, including installation of new irrigation systems and turf removal for state and local agencies. The drought legislation also allows the CCC to help with water conservation measures on commercial properties.

The CCC has funding to complete water conservation projects through June 30, 2016.

LADWP - Feed-in Tariff (FiT) Program

Note: LADWP accepted applications for the fifth allocation of the 100 MW FiT Set Pricing Program in March 2015. This program is the first component of a 150 megawatt (MW) FiT Program, and is designed to support 100 MW. The full 100 MW of contracts will be offered in five allocations occurring every six months. A plan for the additional 50 MW program is still in development.
