The King Conservation District (KCD) Seattle Community Partnership Grant Program is an offshoot of the Member Jurisdiction grant program, but only for projects in partnership with the City of Seattle. KCD and the City have partnered together to run a grant round open to nonprofit organizations only. For projects in cities other than Seattle please see the Member Jurisdiction Grant Program information on the Grants page.

Please see below for the current year’s schedule. We typically hold grant workshops in March and April. The deadline to submit a letter of intent is typically late spring and we invite full proposals in June.

Please be sure to thoroughly review the application guidelines below for more information about what activities are eligible for funding before logging into the online grant portal.

Grant applications and letters of intent for this program must be submitted through our online grant portal. Budget forms must be uploaded into the online grant portal as an attachment to your application. The link to the online grant portal and forms to upload can be found below.

In order to apply for a grant you must have a user name and password to log in to the online grant portal. If you have received a grant from KCD before, contact us for your user name and password. Your contact information is already in our system. If you have not applied for a grant before you will need to create a new account. The online grant portal will also be used for after-grant award agreements and reporting.
