information from Seattle Dept. of Neighborhoods

Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is hosting three more workshops this year for community groups interested in learning more about the Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF). In 2017, NMF will award a total of $3.2 million dollars to volunteer-led projects that strengthen our communities such as cultural festivals, community space improvements, public art, grassroots organizing, and much more. Several enhancements have been made to the Fund this year including a simpler application, added flexibility, and faster review and award processing.

Each workshop will provide an overview of the program requirements and application process. The workshops occur from 6 – 7:30 p.m. To RSVP, call 206-733-9916 or go online at
