Individuals, groups such as neighbors, and community organizations who want to come together to help people live more artful lives. The City can pay by check or credit card. Check payments require a W9 form.

Projects considered for 2024 grant awards will be around community arts activities and programs.

All applicant groups must be open and inclusive, actively engage diverse community members, and be significantly composed of people who live, work or organize in Lynnwood.

Matching Funds:  The grantee must match the grant award with contributions of volunteer labor, donated materials, professional services, and/or cash. All projects require a 1 to 1 match ratio (1:1) which means $1 in value of grantee match is contributed for every $1 dollars in money granted by the City. Documenting match is very important and match pledge forms should be submitted no later than the end of the project date to the Healthy Communities Division.

City staff reviews Healthy Lynnwood Grant for approval. All projects must benefit the community - no project shall be for the benefit of any individual or private entity. Projects that require ongoing funding will not be considered for funding. Projects must be completed within the calendar year they are approved.
