Mission Statement

In 2014, Mayor Ed Murray initiated Find It, Fix It Community Walks, a series of Mayor-led walks that help improve neighborhoods one block at a time. During these walks, neighbors, police, and City officials walk together to identify physical elements in the neighborhood that make it feel unsafe or poorly maintained. Examples include overgrown trees, graffiti, street light outages, and litter. Once the elements are identified, the City and community work together to fix the problems.

To date, nine Community Walks have been held throughout the city, resulting in hundreds of infrastructure improvements - from new trash and recycle bins to upgraded street lights.

Description

In partnership with Cities of Service - a national nonprofit that works with mayors to implement high-impact volunteering strategies - the City of Seattle will award up to $5,000 in Community Project Grants will support community-led revitalization projects in each walk neighborhood ($25,000 total).

The goal of Community Project Grants is to support the volunteer efforts of community members who are working together to improve the appearance and safety of their neighborhoods. The community engagement from this process builds unity and a common purpose that strengthens neighborhoods.

Community members are excited about improving their neighborhoods, but they need the help of their neighbors! Please consider impact volunteering to make Seattle a more livable place for all.
