The City of Eugene Neighborhood Matching Grant cycle is open now through October 31 with $50,000 available for neighborhood improvement and community-building projects. Community involvement and building relationships are key components and are encouraged by requiring that the project budget include a match amount equal to, or greater than, the grant request.
Demonstrating responsible stewardship of our community assets while balancing our community’s social and environmental values are additional components of any project proposal submitted. Applicants are also encouraged to consider how projects may help prepare Eugene to host the World Track and Field Championships in 2021.
Access grant guidelines and application materials online, visit the Permit and Information Center (located at 99 West 10th Ave.), or call Cindy Koehler at 541-682-5272.
A project description and estimated budget are required for the pre-review process to check for consistency with grant guidelines, existing plans, and policies of the City and other partner agencies. Pre-review also ensures applicants submit a competitive final application. Final applications are due on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Awards will be announced in April 2018.
