County grants fund two local community projects
August 20, 2013
Four Creeks and Hobart, both near Issaquah, are two of 25 projects throughout unincorporated King County that are receiving a total of $60,000 community service area grants from the county.
The money, up to $5,000 per project in addition to a required community match of at least one-fourth of the total project, will go toward neighborhood cleanup and planting in the Four Creeks area and support for food pantries in Hobart.
“Volunteers and nonprofits in our unincorporated communities are pulling together to make their neighborhoods more caring, safe and fun, and I’m pleased to see how these grants can help support their work,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said in a press release.
The county selected projects that would provide the most immediate benefit to communities. The application process for the next grant cycle has been moved up to this fall.
