Apply for funds from the Neighborhood Street Fund 

The Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) pays for neighborhood transportation projects identified and prioritized by community members.

Applications due April 17.  The 2016 application is at www.surveymonkey.com/r/2016NSF.   Applications should include a location and a problem statement

With up to $8 million available for the design and construction of neighborhood priorities such as sidewalks and safety improvements in this first of three cycles, the NSF Program offers a great opportunity for communities to shape their transportation environment.  Eligible projects qualify if they meet the following criteria:

·           Large, but not too large (generally between $100,000 and $1 million to design and construct) 

·           Related to transportation

·           Located within SDOT right-of-way (city streets and sidewalks)

·           Have the support of their local neighborhood District Council  

Past projects have included:  new sidewalk construction, sidewalk repair, curb bulbs and intersection redesign, pedestrian lighting and plazas/festival streets.

Funding is from the recently voter approved Levy to Move Seattle. Learn more about the levy at www.seattle.gov/LevytoMoveSeattle.  Full information can be found on the program website at www.seattle.gov/transportation/nsf.htm.  For more information, contact SDOT at NSF@seattle.gov or 206-733-9361.
