”I’m very pleased that these deserving organizations in the Redmond/Woodinville unincorporated areas of District 3 have been awarded grants.”
StoryMetropolitan King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert announced today that three organizations in the Redmond/Woodinville portion of her district have received 2016 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 these deserving organizations in the Redmond/Woodinville unincorporated areas of District 3 have been awarded grants,” said Councilmember Lambert. “I know these grants are often the seed money that makes sure the projects are completed. This money will benefit valued projects applied for by the community.”
The grants require a community match of at least one-fourth of the total project and cannot total more than $5000 to any one organization. The grants in the Redmond/Woodinville are of District 3 are as follows:
• Upper Bear Creek Community Council: contribution to support Music in the Park at Cottage Lake Park
• Trilogy at Redmond Ridge Resident Community Association: contribution for Trilogy Firewise training
• Hollywood Hills Association: contribution for knotweed plan removal and control
”It’s the Council’s responsibility as the local government in the unincorporated areas of King County, to support the citizens who live in these areas,” said Lambert. “I know these grants will be used to improve our citizens’ quality of life in each of the organizations that are recipients. I appreciate all the groups that applied for the grants and know they will be well used.”
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.
