Technology Matching Fund Application Process is Open

Last year’s Technology Matching Fund recipients with Seattle City Council President Bruce Harrell and members of the Community Technology team

The City of Seattle Technology Matching Fund program invites community organizations and nonprofits to apply for grants up to $50,000 each. The grants are designed to help improve digital equity through projects that support the community.

The City seeks applications for projects that increase access to free or low-cost broadband, empower residents with digital literacy skills, and ensure affordable, available, and sufficient devices and technical support. The fund gives matching dollars for community-driven projects. City funds are matched by the community’s contribution of volunteer labor, materials, professional services, or funding.

Three workshops have been set up to guide those interested in applying for a Technology Matching Fund grant. The workshops are free and will provide an overview of the grant program, explain how to apply, and guide attendees to submitting a successful application. The classes are not required for an application to be submitted, or a grant to be awarded. First time applicants are encouraged to attend one of the three scheduled classes:

  • Monday, March 26: 2:30 – 4 p.m. 2100 Building, 2100 24th Ave South, 98144
  • Thursday, March 29: 6 – 7:30 p.m.  Neighborhood House High Point, 6400 Sylvan Way SW, 98126
  • Saturday, March 31: 10 – 11:30 a.m.   Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., 98103

Interpretation and accommodations are available upon request by calling (206) 233-2751 or emailing communitytechnology@seattle.gov. Application materials and more information are available at www.seattle.gov/tech/tmf/.
