King County invites you to apply for CFT funding to add parks and open spaces in your community. the funding is available through the King County Conservation Futures tax levy. Applications are due on Wednesday, March 4.
- These grants can be used to buy or conserve parks and open spaces used for low-impact passive recreation, such as urban green spaces, natural areas, forests, community gardens, farms, and trails. A new policy change this year allows small playgrounds on funded sites.
- The grants can be awarded to cities, the county, park districts, and eligible nonprofit nature conservancies and historic preservation associations.
- Typically a dollar-for-dollar match is required, but acquisitions in historically underserved opportunity areas may qualify for a match waiver (meaning the grant can pay 100% of the acquisition cost).
