King County’s WaterWorks Grant Program is fulfilling its mission to invest in clean water and community partnerships. The King County Council recently passed an ordinance to approve the funding, moving work forward on projects around the region that will include restoring damaged habitat, building green infrastructure and providing youth education and internship opportunities.
Sixty nine local environmental projects that protect water quality, control pollution and build healthy communities will receive funding through King County’s WaterWorks Grant Program.

King County’s WaterWorks Grant Program provides funding to organizations for water quality projects that benefit the ratepayers and also protect and improve water quality within its 420-square-mile service area. Cities, nonprofit organizations, schools, tribal governments are eligible to apply.
Partnerships are encouraged, and key criteria include community involvement and support. Program funding represents up 1.5% of the King County Wastewater Treatment Division’s annual operating budget. The grant funds are designated for the purpose of water quality improvement activities, programs and projects. With these latest projects, a total of 175 projects have received over $12 million in WaterWorks funding since 2015.
WaterWorks isn’t currently accepting new proposals, the next grant cycle will be in 2021.
