$300,000 in City Grants for 3 South Seattle Organizations

Mayor Ed Murray and the Seattle City Council recently awarded seven Seattle organizations a total of $650,741 to support neighborhood-initiated projects across the city, including three in South Seattle.

The awards are part of the City’s Neighborhood Matching Fund, which provides more than $3 million each year to local organizations.

“Through the Neighborhood Matching Fund, thousands of community organizations have completed a variety of projects that have made a difference in their neighborhood and community,” said Mayor Murray.

The Large Projects Fund, a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, provides awards of up to $100,000 to community organizations committed to fostering and building a better community.
