The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is hosting some upcoming workshops regarding the Large Projects Fund. This is a great way for us here in North Seattle to be involved in Seattle’s growth an development, and also to receive some money for development in our community.
From the Large Projects Fund Website:
The Large Projects Fund (LPF) provides awards up to $100,000 to support community members in building community relationships around a project. Large Projects Fund activities may be physical projects as well as less tangible but equally significant educational, cultural, and relationship-strengthening activities. All projects must demonstrate its capacity to build a stronger and healthier community, and must:
- Provide a public benefit and be free and open to all members of the public.
- Emphasize self-help, with project ideas initiated, planned and implemented by the neighbors and community members who will themselves be impacted by the project.
- Demonstrate community match.
- Occur within the Seattle city limits.
The Workshop for North Seattle is at the Bitter Lake Community Center, and it will be Thursday, March 24. If you’re thinking about going, shoot us here at Our North Seattle an email and we’d love to write about some of the projects coming from the North Seattle Community!
