Neighborhood Matching Fund Projects

 

The Neighborhood Matching fund supports local grassroots action within neighborhoods. Neighborhood groups apply for grants from the fund and match them 1:1 with in-kind services, cash, or volunteer time. Volunteers design and build playgrounds, study and replant natural areas, buy athletic equipment and undertake many other types of community improvement projects. Since the creation of the Matching Fund in 1989, communities have completed 450 park projects. The projects listed below are ongoing or recently completed.
