Community Access Program (CAP)

The Community Access Program will provide funding for activities and transportation that give community residents new access to outdoor recreation areas and programs.

CAP grants will meet the following intent from Proposition 68 (2018 Bond Act) Public Resources Code § 80008(c)(1)):

"Up to 5% of funds shall, to the extent permissible under the State General Obligation Bond Law (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 16720) of Part 3 of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code) and with the concurrence of the Director of Finance, be allocated for community access projects including, but not limited to:

a) Transportation,

b) Physical activity programming,

c) Resource interpretation,

d) Multilingual translation,

e) Natural science,

f) Workforce development and career pathways,

g) Education,

h) Communication related to water, parks, climate, coastal protection, and other outdoor pursuits."
