Annual Allocations Grant Programs
Measure A funds are derived from an annual special tax on property within Los Angeles County. Measure A funds are distributed into seven funding categories. Each funding category supports specific funding programs, one of them being Annual Allocations.
Annual allocations are distributed using set formulas. The annual allocation programs are: the Community-based Park Investment Program (Category 1); the Neighborhood Parks, Healthy Communities, & Urban Greening Program (Category 2); the Allocation to Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors (Category 3); the Allocation to Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation (Category 4); the County Cultural Facilities Program (Category 4); the County Priority Projects Program (The District’s Board of Directors may allocate up to 2% of total Measure A funds collected each year for eligible projects).
How to Apply
Applications for Annual Allocations Grant Programs are available on RPOSD’s Grants Management System (GMS). After registering on the GMS, eligible agencies or organizations are able to learn about current funding opportunities and then access the appropriate application depending on project type:
- Annual Allocation Funding – Acquisition
- Annual Allocation Funding – Development
- Annual Allocations Funding – Planning and Design
RPOSD is excited to receive applications and assist grantees on the next steps to get Measure A funds rolling to park projects and open space initiatives across our county.
Annual Allocations Application Workshop

Here are the resources we shared:
