The Neighborhood Matching Fund program has two funds:  

  • The Community Partnership Fund provides funding up to $50,000. This fund provides opportunities to create large and lasting impacts in your community by supporting community organizing, public art projects, park improvements, cultural events, design and construction of community facilities, and more. The deadline for the next and final round of 2021 is September 13 by 5pm. 
  • The Small Sparks Fund provides funding up to $5,000 per project, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis through October 29. This fund is perfect for small community activities such as neighborhood clean-ups, block parties, community art projects, workshops, and more.
