Neighborhood Projects Fund now open for applications

The City of Seattle’s Neighborhood Projects Fund (NPF) is now taking applications for neighborhood-generated projects focused on park or street improvements. Applications are due February 1, 2012 at 5 p.m.

The NPF is made up of two funding sources – Cumulative Reserve Funds (CRF) and Neighborhood Street Funds (NSF). The fund will accept applications for projects valued up to $90K for park or street improvements, such as pathway upgrades, tennis court repaving, accessibility improvements, traffic calming, playground upgrades, school zone speed limit signs, etc. This funding source is not recommended for sidewalks, as sidewalks are typically more expensive than this funding allows.

You may apply to the fund by completing the application form which is available from your Neighborhood District Coordinator or online at http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/btgnsfcrf/.  Applications can be submitted by mail (PO Box 94649, Seattle, WA  98124-4649, Attn: Wendy Watson), by FAX at 206-233-5142, or by email to NeighborhoodProjectFund@seattle.gov.
