OPC’s Prop 68 Grant Guidelines are Available for Review

The Ocean Protection Council (OPC) is pleased to announce the release of the Proposition 68 (Prop 68) Draft Grant Guidelines for public review and comment. Funds from Prop 68 will be used to support the priorities of all of the OPC’s program areas for the next several years. The Draft Grant Guidelines provide an overview of the purpose of Prop 68 funds, which projects and applicants will be eligible to receive funds, the OPC’s competitive and discretionary grant programs, proposed scoring criteria to assess projects, and requirements for future grantees. The comment period provides an opportunity for the public to provide feedback on all aspects of the Draft Grant Guidelines.

The comment period is open through February 28, 2019. Comments may be submitted to Prop68@resources.ca.gov. OPC staff will be holding workshops on the north coast, central coast, and south coast of California in February to present the Draft Grant Guidelines to the public and receive comments. The specific dates and locations of the workshops will be provided on the Prop 68 webpage once they are available.
