Youth Community Access Grant Program

The California Natural Resources Agency accepted proposals for the Youth Community Access Grant Program via the System for Online Application Review (SOAR). The program, funded by Proposition 64, seeks projects that support youth access to natural or cultural resources with a focus on low-income and disadvantaged communities including, but not limited to, community education and recreational amenities to support youth substance use prevention and early intervention.

Approximately $14.5 million in awards will be funded by this program.  Applications are currently being evaluated.  Awards are anticipated January 2022. 

The next funding cycle is anticipated to start Spring/Summer 2022.
