(Community Challenge Grant Program)

  • Promotes physical improvements and greening of public spaces
  • Engages residents and businesses in creating welcoming places for residents to play, gather and build community

The San Francisco Community Challenge Grant Program (CCG) provides funding to community groups, businesses, schools and nonprofit organizations to make physical improvements to their neighborhoods.

The CCG focuses on projects that directly engage residents and businesses in creating green spaces, gathering places, gardens, mini-parks, public art, and other neighborhood amenities featuring and applying ecologically friendly amenities and practices. The program is an important tool for building strong San Francisco neighborhoods by facilitating community participation, stewardship, and responsibility by allowing groups to take the lead in conducting small-scale improvements in their own communities.
