Cultural Festival Organizers

Special Notice

Effective 3/18/2020 the Healthy Lynnwood Grant program is being suspended due to the City's response to the  Covid-19 outbreak.  We will re-evaluate opening the application process up again in June, 2020.

Apply

Lynnwood residents, neighborhood groups, and community organizations who want to do a project to build stronger community connections in the City of Lynnwood are encouraged to apply!

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

Matching Funds:  The neighborhood/community 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 neighborhood 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. See attached matching document form. 

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.
