AN ORDINANCE approving the grant funding allocation for the projects funded through the 2020-2025 parks, recreation, trails and open space levy grant program, Round 1, in accordance with Ordinance 18890, Motion 15378, Ordinance 19166 and the 2021-2022 Biennial Budget Ordinance, Ordinance 19210, Section 93.

STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1. Ordinance 19166 established grant award criteria and the process for the King County parks, recreation, trails and open space levy grant programs, as well as the proposed composition of advisory committees in accordance with Ordinance 18890, Section 7, Motion 15378, Section F.1., and Attachments A, B, D and E to Motion 15378.
2. Ordinance 18890, which took effect May 13, 2019, called for a special election to authorize the King County parks, recreation trails and open space levy. On August 6, 2019, King County voters approved the levy, which included funding for various grant programs including open space river corridors.
3. The open space river corridors grant program under Attachment D to Ordinance 19166 will provide funding for flood risk reduction, habitat restoration, open space, and recreation in river corridors. The goal of the program is to incentivize projects that integrate multiple attributes of projects inside river corridors such as flood control, habitat, passive recreation, and trails.
4. The open space river corridors grant program advisory committee convened in the winter of 2022 to review and score grant proposals and has recommended funding for the projects listed in section 1 of this ordinance, based upon the eligibility and additional criteria set forth in Attachment D to Ordinance 19166.
5. These recommendations reflect round 1 of what is expected to be a three-round grant cycle over the course of the levy. The second round of grants is expected to begin in the fall of 2022, and the third and final round of grants is expected to begin in 2024.
