Gathering Collaborative & King County Announce $25m Grant Program to Address Racism is a Public Health Crisis (Due 3/26/2023)
Posted: 3/12/2023 (Local Events)
The Gathering Collaborative along with King County government invites community and business partners across the region to join in continuing the critical work to undo the harms of systemic racism, which was declared a public health crisis by King County in 2020. Envisioned jointly by community members and King County in August 2021 and launched in March 2022, The Gathering Collaborative is a group of trusted community members who are involved to uplift Black and Indigenous people and their communities – those who are most directly harmed by racism. The members largely reflect these communities and have lived experience in these communities that they serve. The application portal is now live via King County’s Zoom Grants portal.
We encourage all applicants to read over the Grant Program Overview and the Invitational Document in order to get grounded in this work. Please read these foundational documents that show how the Gathering Collaborative shaped these grants, as well as other important details such as reporting and other legal requirements.
