In conjunction with the recent Find It, Fix It Community Walk that occurred in Wallingford on March 14th, the City of Seattle is offering a $5,000 grant to the Wallingford community for a limited period of time following the walk. The grant is to “support community-led revitalization and beautification projects.” To encourage participation, the City recently extended the deadline for the grant to April 12th. To find out more information or apply for the grant, click on this link. Please contact Paige Madden at [email protected] or (206) 233-5166 for additional questions.
I want to take a moment to thank the AmeriCorps walk organizers Lemmis Stevens, Paige Madden & Laura Jenkins for their great work in making our walk a success! We know you all worked hard and you were a pleasure to to work with. Thank you!!!
