Small Grant Program
Now open until September 1st.
Fill out the online application here.
Small grants up to $800 are distributed by KOB on a competitive basis to projects that clean and beautify Oakland parks, creeks, streets and other right-of-way.
- Evidence that the project is sustainable after grant funding terminates is a primary criterion.
- Partnerships that leverage additional resources and the public visibility of a project are also considered when awarding grants.
- All projects must be authorized by the land owner.
- Projects on City of Oakland property must be approved by the City and have an approved Oakland Adopt a Spot agreement prior to September 1, 2017. (Project approval time varies by location and complexity. Allow for a minimum of two weeks.)
- Projects on private property must have demonstrable community benefit.
- Twenty percent of funds will be withheld until the recipient has submitted a final report, including documentation of expenditures, and KOB has conducted a site visit.
The application process opens August 1st and applications are due September 1, 2017.
