SPECIAL NOTE: As of September 2012, the Road Map Project Small Grants Fund will prioritize parent engagement-focused projects and applicants based in South King County (Highline, Auburn, Renton, Kent, Federal Way and Tukwila). Joint applications between South King County-based and non-South King County based organizations are welcome.
The purpose of the Road Map Project Small Grants Fund is to fund activities, events and projects that build the capacity and leadership of local grassroots organizations and community stakeholders (i.e., residents, informal or formal organizations) to participate in improving education results within South Seattle and South King County. The Small Grants Fund is a community engagement strategy used to boost community groups, organizations and institutions who are committed to achieving the Road Map Project goal of improving education results from cradle to college and career. Subject to fund availability, applications are accepted year-around and considered on a monthly basis. Awards will range from $500 to $5,000.
Please review the application packet for a complete review schedule. The following dates listed below are the submission deadline dates:
For more information, please contact Anthony Shoecraft, Community Engagement Manager, at 206-838-6615.
All Small Grants Fund grantees are asked to submit a short report at the completion of their project to be posted on this page. An outcome report is required to seek a future grant. The report simply states whether the anticipated outcomes were achieved and describes lessons learned. It is intended to be used as a tool for other applicants to use.
