The finalists will go before the KPFD on a final round of consideration of all estimated costs, community and economic benefits, contributions to costs from other private & public partners and details of proposed construction schedules, during meetings in July. A schedule will be announced later in mid-2019.

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 may 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 at least a third of the project value.
