Funds available for local Spring Clean activities

Are you planning on participating in the City’s annual Spring Clean event in Ballard? If so the Department of Neighborhoods has a fund to support your activity.

The Spring Clean event is held every April and May, giving the opportunity for residents to keep our city tidy. SPU provides bags, gloves, safety vests and more to help with the neighborhood cleanups.

The City of Seattle’s Small Sparks Fund provides matching dollars for neighborhood-initiated projects that promote community engagement. Community groups can request up to $1,000 to help enhance their activities with funding for publicity, plants, or special clean-up supplies, to name a few.

The deadline for applications is six weeks before the event.
