The City of SeaTac’s 2014 “Pilot to Try It” Neighborhood Grant Program will now accept applications through March 31.
SeaTac is committed to providing an environment that promotes resident involvement. The purpose of the program is to encourage the formation of neighborhood groups that work together to enhance neighborhood identity through collaborative projects. It is the goal of the Neighborhood Grant Program to build viable partnerships between the City and its residents.
Total grant funds available for the overall 2014 Neighborhood Grant Program are $5,000. Only qualified applications will be considered. Awarded projects will be determined by the amount of qualified applications the City receives and is limited to how many projects can be accommodated within the $5,000 program budget.
Examples of projects include: neighborhood identity (signage, kiosks), community gardens, play areas, neighborhood events (Block Watch, Map Your Neighborhood), public amenity (bench, sculpture), neighborhood clean-up, youth projects, street lights (non-arterial), secure mailboxes, artwork/neighborhood beautification, or other similar improvements.
For information and application please contact Resource Conservation/Neighborhood Programs Coordinator Trudy Olson at 973.4763. Applications are also available on the City’s website here.
