In-Kind Agreement Process
Eagle Plaza’s total budget is $1.85M. The plaza has received a majority (80%) of its needed funding from a $1.5M In-Kind Agreement (IKA) between the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) and the owners of 1532 Harrison, an adjacent multi-family housing project approved in October 2015. This $1.5M received unanimous support from the Eastern Neighborhoods Citizens Advisory Committee (ENCAC) in September 2015, and unanimous approval from the San Francisco Planning Commission in February 2016. Learn more about San Francisco's innovative IKA process here. Through this IKA, a portion of the infrastructure impact fees generated by 1532 Harrison funds city-approved portions of the design and construction costs of Eagle Plaza.
In addition, Eagle Plaza has also been awarded two major city grants to fund the plaza's design and construction: a $100,000 Complete Neighborhoods Grant from the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development and a $100,000 Community Challenge Grant from the City Administrator's Office.
Now in 2018 with $1.7M in funding identified, Friends of Eagle Plaza is embarking on a $150,000 community fundraising campaign to close the remaining funding gap to begin construction in early 2019. Please join our campaign and donate today to help make LGBTQ leather history!
