Our WaterWorks Grant Program will make $850,000 available in 2016, with a maximum grant of $250,000.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25.

Nonprofits, schools, local governments and tribes are eligible to apply for the grants.  To promote partnerships and community engagement, groups are encouraged to work together on projects.

We will host an informal workshop in Tukwila on May 4 to assist applicants seeking funding for a project or program:

WaterWorks Grant Application Workshop

To be considered, projects should create a benefit for King County sewer utility ratepayers or support water quality improvements within our service area.

Proposals should also demonstrate that the benefits are connected to our utility’s regional water quality responsibilities.
