The purpose of this document is to transparently share all the information Uplift has to date on the California State Catalyst Predevelopment Phase (formerly referred to as the “Catalyst Program” or “Catalyst Fund”). The Catalyst Predevelopment Phase is a  part of the  California Jobs First program between the planning and implementation phases. The goal of this phase is to seed investment into regional strategies and projects.

Uplift was awarded Catalyst funding with $9M for sector-specific predevelopment activities supporting strategic community projects and initiatives in the Central Coast region. As of June 2024, Uplift has not yet received the awarded funding for the Catalyst Predevelopment Phase of work. Uplift regional strategies are still in development and additional regional criteria are yet to be determined. This Information will be updated as new information and criteria becomes available.
