Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, agencies, tribes, public schools, and park districts in eligible areas for capital projects and programs related to sports and recreation. Applicants must submit a letter of interest prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to increase youth physical activity and expand participation and access to facilities, parks, and programs. Funding is only available to organizations serving residents of King County.
Youth and Amateur Sports Grants (YASG) support fit and healthy communities by investing in programs and capital projects that increase access to physical activity.
Goals and Priorities of YSG investments:
Physical activity is vital to youth development, physical health, mental health, and social emotional learning, and is also associated with better educational outcomes. The Center for Disease Control recommends that youth get at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily to stay healthy. However, only 19% of youth in King County meet this recommendation according to the Healthy Youth Survey.
Disparities in access to physical activity and health outcomes are evident by race, place, and income. By investing in organizations and agencies serving low-income youth and youth of color King County Parks is working to increase youth access to and participation in physical activity.
Eligible expenses can be found on pages 5 and 6 of the Guidelines document. See Supporting Documents below.
