Toxics Reduction and District 5 Community Zero Waste Grant Projects - RFP 2022

In keeping with our values, SF Environment is releasing grant funds for community-based organizations engaged in activities that will help the city achieve its environmental goals. Our Zero Waste and Toxics Reduction and Healthy Ecosystems programs work together to reduce toxics and waste going into San Francisco’s waste stream through a range of programs such as recycling of products like batteries and compact fluorescent light bulbs. SF Environment will award: • A total of $65,000 for one or more one-year projects that directly reduce San Franciscans’ exposure to toxic chemicals and/or demonstrate safer alternatives to toxic products in use in San Francisco. Each grant awarded in this category shall have an initial term of one year, with one option to renew for up to one additional year, which the City may exercise in its sole discretion. If the City elects to exercise its option to extend the grant term, the period by which the grant term is extended will be funded at a rate proportional to the original grant amount. • A total of $100,000 over two years for one project that supports Community Zero Waste projects in District 5's Western Addition neighborhood. Each grant awarded in this category shall have an initial term of two years, with one option to renew for up to one additional year, which the City may exercise in its sole discretion. If the City elects to exercise its option to extend the grant term, the period by which the grant term is extended will be funded at a rate proportional to the original grant amount.
