The ESJ Opportunity Fund is a competitive process overseen by the Office of Equity and Social Justice that provides resources to King County employees to develop and implement projects that work to advance equity and social justice and complement the ESJ Strategic Plan.
This year 39 applications were received totaling over $290,000 in requests, with a 2017-2018 ESJ Opportunity Fund budget of $100,000. This was a highly competitive process that highlights the commitment across the County to equity and social justice work; commitment not only at the department and agency level but also of our employees as individuals.
The selected projects come from all across King County and are doing a range of ESJ related work throughout the County. Learn more about the 2017-2018 recipients here.
