Program awards up to $1000 for neighborhood-initiated projects

SEATTLE - Is your school or neighborhood planning an activity to celebrate the fall "back-to-school" season? If so, your group may qualify for support from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods  Neighborhood Matching Fund program. Its Small Sparks Fund provides matching dollars of up to $1000 for neighborhood-initiated projects that promote community engagement.

Activities could include a back-to-school barbeque, autumn festival, or recruitment for parent organizations, but the ideas are endless. The application is online at seattle.gov/neighborhoods/nmf/webapplication.htm, and the deadline to apply is at least six weeks before your activity.
