Proposal Teams made a 15 minute presentation to the Board in order to receive feedback and suggestions about improvements or suitability for consideration. Those presentations can be viewed by going to the Projects page and clicking on the project name.

The PFD has begun a months long submission period for New Projects to be funded in 2019 and beyond. Legislation passed in 2017 gives the Kitsap PFD the ability to sell bonds against future income between 2027 and 2041 that could amount to $15 million or more.

Preference would be given to projects in South Kitsap or on Bainbridge Island. but not limited to those areas of the County. They would have to be sizeable projects, amounting to $10 million or more in scope and value. There would also have to be a match of dollars, land or labor from a public partner equal to a third of the project value.


More information available by clicking on: New Projects.


NOTE:  The KPFD is providing another opportunity for those organizations or public entities wishing to qualify for the New Project funding to present their proposals. At the Regular Board Meeting on Dec 3rd, each sponsoring entity can make a 15 minute presentation of their project and get feedback from the Board about its ability to qualify for the funding. Only two, or at most three projects, may be selected to receive funding commitments by mid 2019.

The Kitsap Public Facilities District (KPFD) is an independent municipal corporation managing Washington state sales tax rebate funds allocated to Kitsap County.

Projects selected to receive funds from the KPFD have included the very successful Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside, the rehabilitation of the Kitsap Sun Fairgrounds & Events Center and the North Kitsap Regional Events Center. The economic impact and benefit to residents and the communities of Kitsap County are impressive. Please click here to read more details.
