Families, Education, Preschool, and Promise Levy

FEPP Levy

Since 1990, Seattle voters have demonstrated a strong commitment to education and supporting students, Approved by Seattle voters on November 6, 2018, the seven-year, $619 million Families, Education, Preschool and Promise (FEPP) Levy will partner with families and communities to advance education equity, close opportunity gaps, and build a better economic future for Seattle students by investing in:

  • High-quality early learning services that prepare children for success in kindergarten
  • Physical and mental health services that support learning
  • College and job readiness experiences that promote high school graduation
  • Post-secondary opportunities that promote attainment of a certificate, credential, or degree


With the intended outcome that African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, underserved Asian populations, other students of color, refugee and immigrant, homeless, English language learners, and LGBTQ students achieve academically across the preschool to post-secondary continuum.
