This is the final opportunity to attend a Neighborhood Matching Fund workshop. Offered by Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, this workshop is mandatory for neighborhood groups interested in applying this May to the Large Projects Fund which provides up to $100,000 in matching funds for community-initiated projects.
At the workshop, attendees will get an overview of the Neighborhood Matching Fund, the qualities of a good project, and the application process and requirements. Neighbors, friends, and others interested in the funding process are invited to attend.

The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) Program awards matching funds for projects initiated, planned, and implemented by community members in partnership with Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. Its overall goal is to build stronger and healthier neighborhoods through community involvement and engagement. Every award is matched by a neighborhood’s contribution of volunteer labor, donated materials, in-kind professional services, or cash. In addition to the Large Projects Fund, NMF also has the Small and Simple Projects Fund and Small Sparks Fund.
