Opportunities of Interest
LA n Sync actively seeks out ways to match public funding opportunities with diverse coalitions of municipalities, nonprofits, academia and private sector businesses (when appropriate) that can submit competitive applications for the benefit of demographics that are most in need.
In line with that, here are some of the top public funding opportunities on our radar:
- Regional Resilience Planning and Implementation Grant Program – Office of Planning and Research (ca.gov)
The ICARP Regional Resilience Planning and Implementation Grant Program (Regional Resilience Grant Program, or RRGP) will fund local public entities, California Native American Tribes, and Community-Based Organizations that are planning and implementing projects that advance climate resilience and respond to the greatest climate risks in their regions.
- Agriculture & Food Research Initiative Competitive Grants
The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) requests applications for the six AFRI priority areas through the Foundational and Applied Science Program for 2023-2024. The goal of this program is to invest in agricultural production research, education, and extension projects for more sustainable, productive, and economically viable plant and animal production systems. The global agricultural output needs to be expanded significantly to meet the food needs of the population expected in 2050; thus, it is imperative to develop innovative, safe, and sustainable management strategies for livestock (including poultry and aquaculture species), crops, and critical underlying resources.
Grant Directory Refresh
In line with our efforts to support L.A. County municipalities and nonprofit in pursuing and securing public funding opportunities, LA n Sync will be releasing an RFP to hire a consultant to help us refresh our grant writers and technical assistance providers directory. Our focus is on ensuring that the vendors we connect our grantees with are versed in equity and inclusion principles while also having notable lived or professional experience serving BIPOC demographics.
If you know of municipalities, nonprofits, institutions of higher education or other relevant stakeholders who may be interested in pursuing any of the above opportunities or have vendor recommendations for our upcoming RFP – please have them contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
