What is the Neighborhood Street Fund?

For over a decade, first as part of Bridging the Gap and now the Levy to Move Seattle, the Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) has enabled SDOT, the Mayor and City Council to partner with the community to identify, prioritize, fund and build transportation improvements in Seattle's neighborhoods and business districts. The NSF is a program that pays for transportation projects identified and prioritized by the community.

Projects Initiated by You!

Anyone can apply! Any transportation improvement in the right-of-way owned by the public with an anticipated cost greater than $100,000 is eligible for consideration, and anyone can propose a project. Residents, businesses, community groups, and non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply for support of their neighborhood transportation priorities.

The next project selection process will be in 2019! We will post the call for community project applications as we get closer to that date.

How are projects funded?

Funding comes from the 2015 voter-approved, nine-year Levy to Move Seattle, which will improve safety for all travelers, maintain streets and bridges, and invest in reliable, affordable travel options for a growing city. The levy includes $24 million to continue the Neighborhood Street Fund program over the nine years.

What’s the timeline from start to finish?

The NSF program has 3-year cycles to select, design, and build projects. We're now gearing up to engage the community in design of the projects selected in 2016. We'll soon reach out with more information and gather input from each community. Construction outreach will begin in late 2017 or early 2018, once the design for each project is final.
