King County Flood District now accepting applications for flood reduction grant program
The King County Flood Control District is accepting grant applications to fund programs that reduce the impact of local flooding.
The new grant program will target flood reduction projects throughout King County. Total funds available in 2014 will be $2.6 million.
“Though the Pacific Northwest is blessed with abundant rain fall, excess water can lead to devastating and costly flooding,” said Reagan Dunn, King County Flood Control District Chair. “The Flood District’s grant program will target medium and small, local flood reduction projects that will help to reduce flooding in communities across King County.”
Eligible applicants include homeowner associations, private non-profit organizations or associations, schools, special districts, tribes and King County jurisdictions.
Eligible projects include those that address:
· Localized flooding;
· Surface water overflows;
· Near-shore flooding;
· Lake flooding due to outflow blockage;
· Assessment of existing conditions in order to create a lake management district;
· Clearing a clogged agricultural drainage system;
· Maintaining access to goods and infrastructure that serve a larger agricultural economy; or
· Providing navigable water channels for industry and recreation.
The deadline for applications is June 15. Proposals will be reviewed and selected by the King County Flood Control District, and funded projects must be completed within 36 months of receiving funds.
