Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, schools, special purpose districts, and homeowner associations for activities that reduce the risk of natural disasters in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support projects that target local flood reduction. Additionally, funds may be requested to address the countywide flood issues associated with urban streams, coastal erosion/coastal flooding, and culvert replacement/fish passage restoration. Eligible applicants are located in and serve the residents of King County.

The Flood Control District is offering funds in four grant categories:

  • Original Flood Reduction
  • Urban Streams
  • Coastal Erosion/Coastal Flooding
  • Culvert Replacement/Fish Passage

All projects will meet the following requirements:

  • The proposed project must provide a flood reduction benefit so that it directly addresses existing or potential flooding.
  • The proposed project must provide a clear economic benefit that extends beyond the applicant to the broader public good, such as but not limited to:
  • Maintaining public access to residences, businesses or infrastructure.
  • Maintaining safe roads for conveying people, goods, and emergency services.
  • Maintaining existing agricultural or recreational uses.
  • Addressing existing or potential threats from flooding to public safety, water quality or infrastructure.
  • Maintaining populations of anadromous fish.
  • The proposed project must include on-the-ground structural improvements with the following exceptions:
  • Proposals may be phased so they include site assessment, design, and/or permitting only, as long as the application demonstrates that these early phases will ultimately lead to construction of on-the-ground structural improvements in a future phase (i.e., construction phase not funded under this current round).
  • The project involves the assessment of existing conditions related to the creation of lake management districts.
