We are excited to announce the launch of the South King County Fund, established by the Port of Seattle to develop equity-based partnerships and provide resources and support in near-airport communities. The Fund’s first grant cycle in 2020 is now open, and will focus on supporting regional recovery from impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With ties to all of Washington’s key economic sectors and connections to more than 500 employers operating at our facilities, the Port is uniquely positioned to help lead the regional recovery. Through this Fund, we hope to support communities most deeply impacted by the current economic crisis with projects connected to Port-related industries, including aviation, maritime, construction trades and green career industries.
