San Francisco Carbon Fund
The San Francisco Carbon Fund awards grants to neighborhood groups, local nonprofits, businesses, and schools for projects that improve San Francisco’s natural infrastructure and living environment to clean the air and water, mitigate carbon emissions, restore biodiversity, and increase equitable access to green space. The Carbon Fund is administered by the San Francisco Department of the Environment and funded by the City and County of San Francisco’s local carbon offset program, which levies a carbon fee on municipal airline travel.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
