Fiscal Agency 


Ocean Avenue Greening Project

SF Clean City provides fiscal agency for community groups and neighborhood associations interested in applying for grant funding for beautification, cleaning, greening, and environmental stewardship projects. As a fiscal sponsor, SF Clean City allows groups to seek funding that aligns with our mission under our 501c3 non-profit tax-exempt status.

With our extensive experience of implementing projects throughout San Francisco, we are also able to provide technical support to increase the likelihood of a successful proposal and project. SF Clean City has also developed a partnership with the Community Challenge Grant Program to support proposals.

As part of our fiscal agency program, SF Clean City can assist with one or more of the following activities:

  • Grant and proposal writing and review

  • Budget development

  • Coordination with funders

  • Connecting with public agencies and entities in the City of San Francisco

  • Coordinating with neighborhood groups or similar projects

  • Program and fiscal reporting

  • Insurance needs

  • Project service contractors
