SF Beautiful wrote the 1991 legislation establishing the Neighborhood Beautification and Graffiti Cleanup Fund (now known and the Community Challenge Grant) which provides small grants to community projects. Proposition D passed by a wide margin. Part of the grant included providing neighbors with Graffiti Defense kits for cleaning and painting over graffiti.
In 1994, San Francisco Beautiful supported a change to the Public Works code which would require property owners to remove graffiti within 30 days or face penalties.
In 2013, San Francisco Beautiful endorsed legislation proposed by Supervisor Breed.
