Please help us spread the word about this funding opportunity that is available to 34 cities in King County. Not every city knows about these funds or that they can choose to partner with nonprofit organizations by designating the group as an applicant. Nonprofit organizations and other groups can manage the grant requirements on behalf of the city.

KCD is made up of thirty-five Member Jurisdictions (34 cities and unincorporated King County). A portion of KCD’s revenue collected from Member Jurisdictions is set aside as grants for conservation projects prioritized by that Member Jurisdiction. Jurisdictions can utilize the funds for city-led conservation projects, partner with a nonprofit organization to carry out a conservation project or contract with KCD to utilize the funds for an urban forestry project.
