The principal goal of the Conservancy's Prop 68 grant program is to support purposes set forth in the Conservancy's governing statutes and strategic plan, including stewarding Conservancy lands and protecting Basin communities from wildfire; restoring the resilience of Basin forests and watersheds; providing public access and outdoor recreation for all communities; and fostering Basinwide climate adaptation and sustainable communities.; The California Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) leads California's efforts to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural and recreational resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Proposition 68 allocates $27 million directly to the Conservancy for the purposes set forth in its governing statutes and strategic plan, including stewarding Conservancy lands and protecting Basin communities from wildfire; restoring the resilience of Basin forests and watersheds; providing public access and outdoor recreation for all communities; and fostering Basinwide climate adaptation and sustainable communities. This includes advancing the Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program. In particular, Proposition 68 encourages the acquisiition of open space and creation of urban greenway corridors, and, to the extent possible, increasing the diversity and inclusion of communities that benefit from the bond funding. The Conservancy allocated $5 million to local assistance grants. Please contact staff at Forest.Schafer@tahoe.ca.gov or (530) 208-6316 for more information.
