If you and your neighbors plan to participate in the 31st Annual Night Out on August 4, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods has a fund to support your event.
The Small Sparks Fund provides matching dollars for neighborhood-initiated projects that promote community engagement. Community groups can request up to $1000 to help fund Night Out planning and activities such as outreach efforts, educational fairs, bike parades, and neighborhood cleanups, to name a few.
The deadline for applications is Monday, June 22 at 5 PM, but you must register first in the web-based application system by June 19 to apply.
For information on the application process, visit seattle.gov/neighborhoods/nmf/smallsparks.htm or call 206-733-9916. The Small Sparks Fund is open to applications year-round.
