Conservation Futures tax levy (CFT) can help buy open spaces in cities and in rural King County, such as:

  • Urban greenspaces
  • Passive recreation parks
  • Natural areas
  • Trails
  • Community gardens
  • Farms (urban and rural)
  • Forests

CFT funding is provided to governmental agencies and eligible nature conservancy or historic preservation nonprofits. Community groups or individuals can partner on projects with local agencies and eligible nonprofits.

In communities that have historically been underserved with open space investments, CFT funding may be able to pay for 100% of acquisition costs for some projects.

Since 1982, CFT funding has helped protect more than 100,000 acres of land in King County as open space. Read more about CFT’s history, here.
