Recent Activity


San Francisco’s Office of Economic & Workforce Development (OEWD) and the Planning Department’s Groundplay Program have issued a request for proposals (RFP) for up to two Neighborhood Parklet Opportunity Grants.

As part of San Francisco’s vision to promote a diverse, equitable, and inclusive city, Groundplay seeks to improve access to the Parklet Program and its many benefits for a diverse range of parklet sponsors across neighborhoods.

OEWD and Planning are seeking proposals from non-profit organizations and small businesses to enhance and support public spaces via the installation of a parklet. Parklets support commercial districts, contribute to the vibrancy of neighborhoods, and provide needed gathering space.

Each grant is for up to $20,000, to be matched with a 35 percent contribution by the selected applicant(s).
