Federal Way awards Community Enhancement Grants

From staff reports:

A variety of organizations and projects were recently awarded Community Enhancement Grants by Federal Way. The grants are aimed at supporting under-served populations, education, and seniors. 15 organizations were awarded the grants, worth $1,000 to $1,500.

Among the projects funded were a community garden, a program aimed at getting expensive athletic shoes to low-income high school students, and a neighborhood cleanup day.

Also funded was a Veterans Day observance, an after-school science program, and assistance for domestic violence. Some of the organizations that received funding were Northwest Church, Habitat for Humanity, Sherwood Forest Elementary, and Advancing Leadership.

The Human Services Commission was responsible for reviewing the projects and organizations, and giving recommendations to the city council. The council approved the recommendations during its April 17 meeting. The city provided a total of $20,000 for these grants.
