All Projects: California Financing and Coordinating Committee (CFCC) Funding Fairs, Funding Information, and Technical Assistance
The CFCC is comprised of five California State and two Federal funding agencies. The CFCC’s website lists up-to-date information on available grants, loans, bond financing, and application assistance for infrastructure projects. The CFCC conducts free annual funding fairs statewide to educate the public, an opportunity to meet with financial representatives from each agency, and learn more about their currently available funding programs. Although the CFCC webpage includes funding information for all types of infrastructure projects, the funding fairs typically showcase information related to wastewater disposal and safe drinking water funding programs only.
Active Transportation, Parks, and Public Transit: The Greenlining Institute’s Uplift Resource Finder
The Uplift Resource Finder matches individuals, agencies, Native American Tribes, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit businesses from urban and rural communities to green energy and recycling, energy efficiency and agricultural efficiency, and sustainable communities and clean transportation funding programs. The resource provides an overview of the funding program and links the user to the program webpage.
Parks: The Complete Parks Playbook
Written by Change Lab Solutions, the Complete Parks Playbook helps jurisdictions assess a community’s parks system – the local or regional network of parks, green spaces, and open spaces – and determine areas in need of improvement as well as policy levers that can facilitate those improvements. This introductory resource can help decision-makers and advocates develop a safe and accessible parks system that is integrated into a community’s built environment, hosts activities and programs, and addresses residents’ needs.
