The King Conservation District (KCD) – Seattle Community Partnership Grant Program is requesting applications from organizations and community groups committed to improving Seattle’s natural resources. Organizations and groups are encouraged to apply for projects that benefit communities that have been disproportionately impacted by environmental injustice and systemic racism and that enhance natural resources through direct improvements, education and outreach, pilot or demonstration projects, or capacity building support.
Letters of Intent (LOI) are due by 5pm on Monday, July 15, 2019. There will be webinars and an in-person workshop. All application materials and information about the grant program can be found on KCD’s website. For more information, contact Jessica Saavedra, 425.282.1906.
