Metropolitan King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert announced today that seven organizations in her district have received 2014 Community Service Area grants from King County.
The grants are awarded to projects throughout unincorporated King County that “…offer unincorporated area residents in the Community Service Areas an opportunity to participate and be more informed and connected in their communities.”
”I’m very pleased that, once again, many deserving organizations in the unincorporated areas of District 3 have been awarded these grants”, said Councilmember Lambert. “I know those involved in these community-oriented groups will spend this money wisely for the benefit of all citizens.”
The grants require a community match of at least one-fourth of the total project and cannot total more than $5000. The grants in District 3 are as follows:
- Sno-Valley Senior Center and Adult Day Health: $3,500 to support their volunteer program outreach and maintenance.
- Fall City Community Association: $3,000 for Fall City signage and $3,500 for year-round garbage dumpster service in downtown Fall City.
- Fall City Metropolitan Park District: $2,000 for signs, toilet rental and trail improvement in Fall City.
- Bona Fide American Mission: $2,000 in support of the Sammamish Valley Festival.
- Snoqualmie Valley Community Network: $2,000 to sponsor their “Be the Change Leadership Conference” for youth.
- SnoValley Tilth: $2,000 to support a lecture and discussion series on “Why Eat Local.”
- Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance: $2,000 to support community events in the Snoqualmie Valley.
“The County Council is the local government in the unincorporated areas of King County,” said Lambert. “These grants are so appreciated by our citizens and will be used to improve the quality of life in these areas.”
There will be additional grants available next year. Organizations in the unincorporated areas of King County are encouraged to plan ahead to apply. Applications will be available in late fall.
