King Conservation District (KCD) and Seattle’s Office of Sustainability and Environment (OSE) are excited to announce that the 2022 Seattle Community Partnership Grant Program is now accepting applications!
There is a little more than $700,000 in funding available from KCD and each proposal can request up to $75,000. This grant invests in natural resource improvements led by or in deep partnership with communities disproportionately impacted by environmental injustice and systematic racism.
Organizations seeking to improve natural resources and advance environmental equity can learn more and apply at https://kingcd.org/tools-resources/grants/seattle-community-partnership-grant-program/.
Eligible projects can focus on a number of areas for natural resource improvement, including:
- Managing and preventing stormwater pollution
- Protecting and restoring creeks, shorelines and wetlands
- Building healthy soil
- Supporting the urban forest
- Supporting a sustainable food system

This year’s grant will take into consideration unique needs to continue doing natural resource and environmental justice work amidst a pandemic.
