Everett is vibrant and diverse community and when we come together around a common goal, our community thrives! The Community Sparks program helps Everett residents foster a sense of community through small projects that will benefit the community and build connections. Community Sparks funding is available to community groups for projects that build stronger connections within Everett city limits. Up to $500 of eligible expenses for your project or event are reimbursable with Community Sparks funds and must be matched with volunteer labor and/or monetary or in-kind donations. People of all ages and abilities are encouraged to apply.
