The Technical Assistance Program (TAP) helps public agencies and eligible non-profit organizations gain the skills they need to develop grant proposals, apply for Measure A funding, and manage their park projects and programs. The Urban Parks TAP, for cities and communities in Very High or High Park Need Areas, is currently in development and will be implemented in January 2021.
Applications for the Measure A Maintenance & Servicing (M&S) Funds for Nonprofit Organization are now available in the Grants Management System (GMS)!
The program will have a pool of approximately $1.9 million in funding available to be shared among all eligible applications. The program runs on a 3-year cycle with Fiscal Years 2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022 available this round. Measure A M&S Funds are available to eligible non profit organizations for maintenance and servicing of parklands acquired, improved or developed from projects that received grant funding from RPOSD’s Measure A and/or Proposition A programs. The complete guidelines for this program can be found on page 2-67 of the Grants Administration Manual.
For the 3-year cycle, Fiscal Years 2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022, maintenance and servicing expenses incurred on or after July 1, 2019 are eligible for reimbursement. Maintenance & Servicing submissions are a multiple step process through the online Grants Management System.
Note: Fiscal year starts on July 1st and ends on June 30th.
