California voters passed the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 (Proposition 68) on June 5, 2018. Proposition 68 authorized the Legislature to appropriate $40 million to the California Natural Resources Agency (the “State”) for competitive grants that protect, restore, and enhance California’s cultural, community and natural resources.
It is the intent of the people of California that projects funded by Proposition 68 result in public benefits addressing the most critical statewide needs and priorities for public funding as well as improve a community’s ability to adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change; improve and protect coastal and rural economies, agricultural viability, wildlife corridors or habitat; develop future recreational opportunities; or enhance drought tolerance, landscape resilience, and water retention.
