Learn how to get money for a neighborhood project

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods set up the Neighborhood Matching Fund to get small, simple projects done in your part of the city. Things like traffic circles, certain kinds of plantings, drain improvements and more can all be accomplished through applying for the money. The city even makes it easy to learn the best way to do it.

The Neighborhood Matching Fund Small and Simple Projects Workshops will teach you:

  • The application process and guidelines
  • What makes a project eligible
  • How to apply using the online system

The application deadline for this year is March 4 so to get more in the system, a workshop in West Seattle is being held Thursday, Jan. 17 from 6 to 7:30pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center at 4408 Delridge Way SW. It is being held jointly with the Technology Matching Fund.

The maximum amount granted in the program is $25,000.
