Local organizations can apply for county grants
August 9, 2011
Issaquah nonprofit organizations can apply for grants through a program from Countywide Community Forums.
The grant program is open to any nonprofit organization operating in King County. Find the application and more information at www.communityforums.org/partner/application. The deadline to apply is Aug. 22.
Organizations can receive grants of up to $5,000. The amount is based on the number of survey responses each applicant can acquire during Countywide Community Forums’ online surveys from Aug. 19 to Oct. 16.
The survey topics focus on how residents in unincorporated areas can engage King County government, as well as the upcoming county budget and King County Metro Transit’s budget shortfall.
Participation in Countywide Community Forums is open to anyone living, working or attending school in King County. Options include both in-person forums and an online survey. Find the surveys at www.communityforums.org.
