2019-2020 Community Grants Request for Proposals Now Open

Each year at the beginning of the new fiscal year in July, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors releases a list of budget amendments, commonly known as "addbacks." These are funds that each Supervisor allocates to various City departments for programs in their respective districts. DCYF conducts an  open and transparent Community Grants RFP process  for the budget amendments that we receive through the addback process. Any qualified nonprofit is welcome to submit proposals for the Community Grants RFP - there is no requirement to be a current DCYF grantee.  Proposals are due by October 7, 2019.    Learn More →
