Other Sources

The City has several sources of funding for capital projects that are derived from specific sources and designated for specific purposes. For example, the Marina Yacht Harbor Fund receives revenues generated by users of the Yacht Harbor and uses them for projects such as sediment remediation and security and lighting systems. The Open Space Fund sets aside funds from annual property tax revenues, outside private sources, and Recreation and Parks Department revenues, and applies those funds to open space expenditures. In the first year of the Capital Plan, these funds will provide $33.2 million for these projects, as shown in Table 5.5.

San Francisco also receives funding from the federal government and the State of California to execute some of our capital projects. Major funders include the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Transportation Administration, and the California Department of Transportation, to name a few. At present the City does not track which grants support capital projects, so no summary data on that subject is available. These sources have provided funding for important work including seismic retrofits and improvements to parks, first responder facilities, and libraries.
