King County hosts meetings in Lake City, Kent and White Center to share information about available grant funding opportunities for creating parks and open spaces in communities.
King County hosts three workshops this fall to share information about grant opportunities for creating parks and open spaces, especially in communities that have historically been under-served with open space investments.Each meeting will feature presentations about three funding sources: King County Conservation Futures, King County Parks Levy, and the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.
The meeting agenda will include time to share ideas about open space needs in communities and brainstorm how communities, eligible nonprofits and cities can collaborate to apply for grants. Please find the workshop announcement to share with your community at kingcounty.gov/cft.
