Learn about the Neighborhood Matching Fund at upcoming virtual workshops

Our popular Neighborhood Matching Fund is relaunching after a pause in funding cycles due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning July 16, applications will be available for the program’s Community Partnership Fund, which provides up to $50,000 to support community-building projects in Seattle’s neighborhoods.

Seattle Department of Neighborhoods will host three virtual workshops to assist community organizations and neighborhood groups interested in getting funding for their ideas. Each workshop will provide an overview of the Neighborhood Matching Fund, the qualities of a strong application, and the review process. Project Managers will also be available to answer questions, explore your idea, and offer suggestions to help you succeed in your application.

Workshop dates and times are below. Please RSVP at seattle.surveymonkey.com/r/nmf-fall2020.
