For many years, the neighborhoods along the Duwamish River have been impacted by the Superfund clean-up that has been occurring in and along the river. For that reason, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is again seeking proposals to help fund community-based projects that increase the sustainability of neighborhoods along the Duwamish River. Proposals to the Duwamish River Opportunity Fund should address such topics as job training, economic development, access to healthy food, affordable housing strategies, environmental development or restoration, or major community development activities that will have long-term, sustainable impacts. The total amount of funding is $250,000.
