Youth Community Access Grant Program

The California Natural Resources Agency received $5.3 million to fund programs that support youth access to natural and cultural resources, including community education and recreational amenities to support youth substance prevention and early intervention efforts. The Program has a focus on low-income and disadvantaged communities.

The Agency has conducting a series of listening sessions with community members across the State to learn about the types of projects and programs they would like to see as a result of this new grant program.
