City to host workshop for applicants of Large Projects Fund

Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ popular Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) announced its funding opportunities for 2016 early last month.

All three of its funds (Small Sparks, Small and Simple Projects Fund, and the Large Projects Fund) support the efforts of community members as they work on projects to build stronger neighborhoods and communities. Since the program started 27 years ago, over 5000 projects have been launched across the city with funding support.

The Large Projects Fund (LPF) awards up to $100,000 per project and is open to applications once a year. This year’s deadline is May 2 by 5 p.m. It is mandatory for interested community groups to attend one of the LPF workshops offered before applying.

The closest workshop to our neighborhood is being held on Thursday, March 24, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Bitter Lake Community Center (13035 Linden Ave N). Click here to see other workshop locations and times.
