The Neighborhood Matching Grants (NMG) program began in 2000 with the adoption of Council Resolution 4632. In that time we’ve funded 133 projects in our neighborhoods. The benefits of the NMG program go well beyond the financial investment and are an important tool for building community, creating connections and improving our neighborhoods, parks and natural areas.
Beginning July 16 2018, applications for smaller projects, less than $5,000 will be considered by HRNI and other City staff for approval and funding on an ongoing basis. Staff involved in the review process will be selected based on the project under consideration.
The review process for large projects ($5,000 - $12,000) will begin January 2019 using the current application and pre-review process which includes evaluation and recommendations from the Department Advisory Committee, and review and approval by City Council with funding available for approved projects on July 1, 2019.
