“How to Create A Community Project” 
Workshop for Neighborhood and Environmental Mini-Grants, 
Wednesday, March 16, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., 
Shoreline City Hall, Council Chambers, 17500 Midvale Avenue North.

Bright banners on light poles, community gardens growing vegetables, a family Halloween carnival, wildlife habitat – all these enhancements to the Shoreline community are the result of neighbors with great ideas taking advantage of available Mini-Grant funding.

A how-to workshop on March 16 will give you the information you need to apply for either a Neighborhood or Environmental Mini-Grant. Grants of several hundred dollars up to $5,000 are available on a first-come first-served basis for both types of grants.

Environmental Mini-Grants create a sustainable community in Shoreline by developing stewardship among residents and businesses, creating partnerships among community groups and contributing to regional initiatives that protect the environment. Neighborhood Mini-Grants are used to increase community involvement, raise the visibility of neighborhood associations and create tangible neighborhood improvements.

Past Neighborhood projects include neighborhood banners and public art, a free community outdoor movie night, and neighborhood identity signs, while Environmental grants have supported wildlife habitat projects, SolarFest, K-12 water quality education, a green business resource center and school recycling, among others.

For more information contact Neighborhood Coordinator Nora Smith at 206-801-2253,  or Environmental Programs Coordinator Rika Cecil at (206) 801-2452.
