Application deadline: 12/4/2020, 1 PM

The South King County Fund Environmental Grants Program supports projects that improve the local environment in the near-airport communities of Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, Normandy Park, SeaTac, and Tukwila. Community-led groups and non-profits are invited to apply for funding to support activities such as:

  • public space improvements (including parks, school playgrounds, public square or port habitat site)
  • equipment or artwork installations
  • or neighborhood or environmental stewardship projects.

This new program expands the reach of the successful Airport Community Ecology (ACE) program into more communities that surround Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Proposals must be submitted by 1 PM on December 4, 2020. Grants awarded will be up to $20,000.

The SKCF Environmental Grants Program is a new cycle of the South King County Fund, established by the Port of Seattle in 2019 to develop equity-based partnerships and provide resources and support in near-airport communities.  In 2020, $435,000 of funding is available for the SKCF Environmental Grants Program. Projects must take place on public property and demonstrate a 3:1 match, meaning every dollar awarded by the Port must be matched by three dollars of project value from the grant recipient or project partners.
