Technology Matching Fund application process is open

By City of Seattle

The City of Seattle Technology Matching Fund program invites community organizations and nonprofits to apply for grants up to $50,000 each. The grants are designed to help improve digital equity through projects that support the community.

“From computer labs to STEM programs, job training, and teaching parents how to use a laptop or tablet, the work of these technology grants help connect communities that have limited access to technology year after year,” said Seattle Council President Bruce Harrell. “We look forward to hearing the projects this year’s applicants present.”

The City seeks applications for projects that increase access to free or low-cost broadband, empower residents with digital literacy skills, and ensure affordable, available, and sufficient devices and technical support. The fund gives matching dollars for community-driven projects. City funds are matched by the community’s contribution of volunteer labor, materials, professional services or funding
The application deadline is Monday, May 7, at 5:00 p.m. For more information and application materials, go to www.seattle.gov/tech/tmf/. If you have questions about applying for funds or would like to discuss your project idea, please contact communitytechnology@seattle.gov or 206-233-2751.
