The Interim Greenhouse Grant Program was created to support access to living wage jobs in the urban agriculture, horticulture, and food-related green industries. Through the grant program, a review panel of community members and SFPUC staff will select up to four nonprofits or social enterprises for three years of funding to provide green sector training and job placement for Bayview-Hunters Point residents. Grant terms may be extended for two additional years based on each program's ability to help home-grown residents find and retain living wage jobs.
The Bayview Hunters Point Neighborhood houses one of San Francisco’s largest resources, the Southeast Treatment Plant. This facility manages 80% of our City’s wastewater, allowing all San Francisco residents to have reliable and efficient sewer services. We aim to reduce the impacts caused by the Southeast Treatment Plant by providing the Bayview-Hunters Point community with educational and job opportunities through our Southeast Community Facilities, Greenhouses and community programs.
Our Agency seeks community-based organizations or social ventures/enterprises that can provide Bayview-Hunters Point residents with green sector workforce opportunities during the planning and construction phases for the permanent, new Greenhouses. Our goal is to fulfill our Agency’s Environmental Justice Policy while supporting the health, wellness and resiliency of the Bayview community.
