The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) Program awards matching funds for projects initiated, planned, and implemented by community members in partnership with Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. Its overall goal is to build stronger and healthier neighborhoods through community involvement and engagement. Every award is matched by a neighborhood’s contribution of volunteer labor, donated materials, in-kind professional services, or cash.
