Seattle awarding contracts for community climate projects


Park(ing) day, originally uploaded by JeanineAnderson.

Have an idea on how to reduce household climate impacts in Seattle?

The city is looking to award contracts to community groups and neighborhood organizations that can help the city become a national and international leader in sustainability.

Applications are now being accepted for projects with a budget of $10,000 or less in four categories, including:Picture 8

Successful proposals will meet the following criteria:

  • Project fosters climate‐friendly purchasing, transportation or home energy choices
  • Project identifies a clear target audience, objective, and outcomes
  • Project decreases greenhouse gas emissions for an individual or a household
  • Project incorporates a means to measure success

Four to six contracts will be awarded. To get an edge on the competition, the city suggests the project engages a historically under-represented population. The project deadline is April 22.

Learn more about the project during an information session Tuesday at City Hall:

Tuesday, March 26, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Seattle City Hall, 600 4th Ave

Boards & Commissions Room, L280 (in the basement)
