The Community and Neighborhood Matching Grants (CNMG) program began in 2000 with the adoption of Council Resolution 4632. In that time we’ve funded 141 projects in our neighborhoods. The benefits of the CNMG program go well beyond the financial investment and are an important tool for building community, creating connections and improving our neighborhoods, parks and natural areas.
Beginning July 8, 2019 applications for smaller projects, less than $5,000 will be considered by HRNI and other City staff for approval and funding on an ongoing basis. Staff involved in the review process will be selected based on the project under consideration.
The application process for large projects ($5,000 - $12,000) opens on January 31, 2020 with projects required to go through pre-review by March 11, 2020. Read the guidelines for more information and how to apply!
