Sea Level Rise Adaptation Planning Grant Program

In 2021, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 1 (Atkins, 2021) into law. Senate Bill 1 (SB 1) directs the state to provide funding to local and regional governments to develop sea-level rise (SLR) adaptation plans and implementation projects. In 2022 and 2023, OPC received $37.5 million and $54.5 million respectively to support the implementation of SB 1, with an additional $10 million anticipated in the 2024-2025 budget. Ultimately, OPC’s SB 1 SLR Adaptation Planning Grant Program (SB 1 Grant Program) aims to provide funding for coastal communities to develop consistent SLR adaptation plans and projects to build resilience to SLR along the entire coast of California and San Francisco Bay.
