In-kind grants to Mukilteo, Washington nonprofits, for-profits, community groups, and public agencies for projects that promote health, well-being, and economic development. Applicants may request the use of City facilities to host their event, project, or activity.
For the purposes of this grant process, co-sponsorship consists of asking for use of a city facility i.e. the Rosehill Community Center, Picnic Shelters and/or use of a city park or roadway for a special event or program. “Special event” and program are defined as: an event/program that benefits the Mukilteo community and is open to the general public.
The purpose of these grants is to:
-Promote, support and expand existing and new Mukilteo special events and programs.
-Provide co-sponsorship opportunities to promote, publicize, and support and/or expand economic development activities in Mukilteo.
-Provide co-sponsorship for activities that promote the general health or well-being of the community.
Example of projects:
-An activity that is open to the public and offers enhanced opportunities in areas such as culture and arts, recreation, youth or adult activities, and community safety.
-A project that promotes job growth; or promotes business attraction and retention.
-A program that promotes the community in areas such as culture and arts, recreation, education, youth development, safety, etc.
Each year the city will review the co-sponsorship grant proposals and determine the number of City co-sponsorship agreements that will be accommodated. The city has the final say on the day, date, and time and location of the co-sponsorship activity.
The co-sponsorship limits for each location are:
1) The Point Elliott Room at the Rosehill Community Center is available for:
-4 Friday, Saturday or Sunday events/programs per year
