The Port of Seattle is excited to announce for the first time, a series of pre-application workshops in advance of the third round of the South King County Community Impact Fund (SKCCIF) set to launch this fall. Port staff will host a series of virtual workshops for both Economic Recovery funding opportunities and Environmental Grants over the next several weeks. These workshops will focus on the most important components of the application process and provide interested organizations and individuals with key information. If you will need an interpreter for any of the workshops or site visit, please contact Ilays Aden at aden.i@portseattle.org

Space on this tour will be limited to the first 35 registrants.  

10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

Please note that participation in these workshops is NOT a requirement for submitting an application. The goal of the workshops is to provide additional information on the application process and Port requirements. Port staff cannot provide direct guidance on the likeliness that a project will be funded, instead workshops will focus on project eligibility and application requirements. Materials used in these workshops will be based on prior awarded projects or theoretical examples. There will be ample time to ask questions, and to network with other potential applicants to foster project collaboration. 

We look forward to seeing you at a workshop soon!
