OneEastside brings together regional partners in united voice for collective impact. By focusing on sustainable economic development, together we can build an equitable economy with access to affordable housing, transportation, and quality education for all members of our community.

About OneEastside

OneEastside coordinates economic development across East King County and started work during the COVID-19 pandemic to synchronize pandemic relief measures across the eastside.

Initially funded by a one-year federal grant, the OneEastside SPARK program coordinates regional partners to maximize resources and focus on small business recovery and resiliency. Through the SPARK program, OneEastside forged new territory in equity and economic development by piloting programs in partnership with our community-based organizations, bringing in-language advisors and technical assistance to hundreds of business owners from underserved communities.
