Project proposals are now being accepted for the King Conservation District (KCD) – Seattle Community Partnership Grant Program from organizations and community groups committed to improving Seattle’s natural resources and advancing environmental equity. Community groups can apply for up to $75,000.
The program advances the City of Seattle’s Equity and Environment Initiative and KCD’s natural resource priorities by funding projects that build community awareness about environmental issues, manage stormwater with green infrastructure, protect and restore water bodies, build healthy soil, support the urban forest and a sustainable local food system.
Organizations and groups are encouraged to apply for projects that benefit communities that have been disproportionately impacted by environmental injustice and systemic racism and that enhance natural resources through direct improvements, education and outreach, pilot or demonstration projects, or capacity building support.
Letters of Intent (LOI) are due by 5pm on Monday, July 15, 2019. All application materials and information regarding project requirements and eligibility can be found on KCD’s website. For more information, contact Jessica Saavedra, 425.282.1906.
