Grants of up to $75,000 to Washington nonprofits, community organizations, and tribal agencies in eligible areas to protect natural resources and promote environmental equity. Funding is intended to support education and outreach, capacity building, pilot or demonstration projects, and direct improvement of natural resource conditions. Focus is placed on populations disproportionately affected by systematic racism, such as People of Color, Black, and Indigenous communities. Eligible projects must be within the boundaries of Seattle City limits, or pre-approved locations that are outside City limits, such as unincorporated areas of Seattle or other Seattle-owned properties.
The COVID-19 pandemic does not change the need for improved natural resources and access to healthy food and open space, and in many cases, it amplifies that need. The focus of this year’s grant round continues to be investing in natural resource improvements that are led by or in deep partnership with communities disproportionately impacted by environmental injustice and systematic racism. COVID-19 has also disproportionately impacted many of the same communities. This year’s grant will also take into consideration unique needs to continue doing this work amidst a pandemic.
It is important that these projects are led by or in deep partnership with Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color communities. Projects that reach immigrants/refugees, youth, seniors, people with low incomes, and people with limited English proficiency are also encouraged.
Projects must address at least one equity and environment goal, one natural resource priority area, and one natural resource action. The following section provides an overview of each category.
