Seattle Public Utilities is offering waste prevention grants

By Seattle Public Utilities

Seattle Public Utilities is now accepting applications for matching grants for community projects focused on waste prevention.

Waste prevention means creating less waste by buying and using less, using reusable items and sharing or donating items so others can use them.

When we prevent waste, we help the environment, protect public health, build community and save money.

Grant program objectives include the following:

  • Support community leadership and innovation around waste prevention
  • Increase community access to waste prevention opportunities
  • Reduce the amount of materials going to waste in Seattle

Funding:

  • There is a total fund of $100,000 to award for the 2018-19 grant cycle
  • Grant requests may range from $2,000 to $15,000

Schedule:

  • The application deadline is Feb. 23
  • Decisions will be made in April

Who should apply:
Nonprofits, community and neighborhood groups, businesses, schools, colleges and universities, housing institutions, youth and children’s programs, individuals age 18 or older.
