Grants offered for projects helping unincorporated areas
November 5, 2013
King County is offering a third year of Community Service Area grants. The grants encourage residents in the unincorporated communities to become more connected in their neighborhoods.
A total of $60,000 is available through the program for projects, with grants of less than $5,000. Examples of possible projects are:
- newsletters that inform residents about important issues affecting the community;
- events such as concerts, festivals, and educational and safety projects;
- neighborhood improvement projects such as tree planting, graffiti removal and cleanup;
- community-led planning or training; and
- signage for a neighborhood or community.
Proposals should demonstrate how activities would be accessible to all unincorporated King County residents regardless of race, income or language spoken.
A minimum match of 25 percent in the form of volunteer time, cash or in-kind services of the total project cost is required. Applications are due Jan. 10, 2014.
Information about the 2014 application process, grant application workshop dates, and a list of the 2013 awardees is available at http://1.usa.gov/19Qo9fE.
