California Grants Portal

The California State Library is excited to announce the launch of the California Grants Portal, a single website to find all state grant and loan opportunities offered on a first-come or competitive basis.

Sierra Nevada Conservancy Grants

We issue grants to public agencies, nonprofits, and eligible tribes for projects that restore, protect, and enhance Sierra Nevada watersheds and communities. These grants are awarded under three separate programs: Forest & Watershed Health, Resilient Sierra Nevada Communities, and Vibrant Recreation & Tourism. Proposals are accepted on a continuous basis and will be considered on a quarterly cycle, starting July 2020.

Grant Writing Workshops

Grant Writing Workshops are available to help build the capacity of organizations that serve the Sierra Nevada Region. Workshops are now available as an online webinar. Contact your SNC Area Representative to organize or attend a workshop.

Start Planning for the Rural Recreation and Tourism Grant!

The new CA Department of Parks and Recreation’s Rural Recreation and Tourism Program will create new recreation opportunities within rural communities to support health-related and economic goals. The grant is not due until next November, but applications which have included the community in planning and design are much more competitive. If you are interested in this opportunity, familiarize yourself with the program now.
