King Conservation District is accepting Pre-Proposals to fund programs that advance our local food economy. Deadline for Pre-Proposals is April 23, 2019.
The purpose of the Regional Food System Grant Program is to bridge the gap between producers and consumers, and to serve as a catalyst in making local food production both environmentally and economically sustainable. Based on goals and strategies of the King County Local Food Initiative, and outreach with food system stakeholders, the program funds food system-related projects which demonstrate public benefit. Those projects also link to improving agricultural working lands in King County. The program is designed to support projects that contribute to the economic viability of local farmers, encourage new farmers, expand acreage in food production, improve food access, and increase demand for and sales of King County farm products. Projects we funded in the paste can be found here.
