2022-2023 Community Grants Request for Proposals (RFP)

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 RFP process for the budget amendments that we receive through the addback process. This competitive process is utilized throughout the City for the allocation of public funds.
