Transformative Climate Communities Grant
The County of San Diego and the Spring Valley Community Alliance are Co-Applicants for the Transformative Climate Communities Grant offered by the California Strategic Growth Council. This grant funds development and infrastructure projects that achieve major environmental, health, and economic benefits in California’s most disadvantaged communities. Being that the County of San Diego recently identified areas of Spring Valley and La Presa as environmental justice areas, this grant falls in line with the County and the Alliance's vision of transforming these areas into a climate friendly and prosperous community.
Together we will use this grant to focus on four areas of concern:
The creation of a Community Land Trust to preserve or revitalize an area within the community
Bicycle & non-motorized transportation safety enhancements within the community
Training opportunities for Green Jobs
Exploring options to bring Health facilities or Services closer to the community
We are teaming up with Bikes del Pueblo, San Diego Youth Services, San Ysidro Health, and the Spring Valley Chamber of Commerce to help carry out the goals of this grant.
