Deadline approaching to secure funds for neighborhood projects

Do you have an idea for a fantastic neighborhood project in Ballard but need more funds?  The city’s Neighborhood Matching Fund may be able to help.

Applicants need to be quick because the deadline to apply for the Small and Simple Projects Fund is Monday, October 6 at 5 p.m. This fund provides matching awards of up to $25,000 to neighborhood groups and community organizations for community-building projects. Locals should note that this is the last opportunity in 2014 to apply to this fund.

There are two more workshops scheduled where potential applicants can get an overview of the Neighborhood Matching Fund, the qualities of a good project, and the application process and requirements. To RSVP call (206) 733-9916 or click here .

The closest workshop to our neighborhood is being held on Tuesday, September 16, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Northgate Community Center (10510 5th Ave NE). All are welcome to attend.
