Prop 68 Funding

OPC staff held workshops in Oakland, San Diego, Eureka, Salinas, and Santa Monica – in addition to an online webinar – in February to present the Draft Grant Guidelines to the public and receive comments.The presentations slides from the workshops and webinar are available here.

The Ocean Protection Council (OPC) is pleased to announce the release of the Proposition 68 (Prop 68) Draft Grant Guidelines. 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 closed on February 28, 2019. OPC staff is now reviewing comments and revising the guidelines, and anticipates releasing the revised guidelines in late April or early May 2019.
