2022 KCD Seattle Community Partnership Grant Program Now Accepting Applications!

Applications are due February 4, 2022 by 11:59 pm.

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! 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/.

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. We know COVID-19 has also disproportionately impacted many of the same communities. This year’s grant will take into consideration unique needs to continue doing natural resource and environmental justice work amidst a pandemic.

View the grant guidelines to learn more about the natural resource priorities and actions, as well as the Equity and Environment Initiative strategies that projects should address. 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

Two virtual information sessions to learn more about the application and project review process. Those sessions are:

Tuesday, January 18 at 5:30 pm
Wednesday, January 26 at Noon
