Small grants in the amount of $500 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. Public locations must be registered under the Oakland Adopt a Spot program prior to the awarding of funds. 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.
