Two workshops offered for Large Projects Fund applicants

The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF), a program of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, is hosting its last two workshops for those interested in applying to the Large Projects Fund this May.

The Large Projects Fund provides matching funds of up to $100,000 to neighborhood groups for community-building projects. Attendance at one of these workshops is required to submit a Large Projects Fund application.

The mandatory workshop will provide an overview of NMF, the qualities of a strong application and the review process. Neighborhood and community groups interested in applying are invited to attend. The final workshop dates and locations are as follows:

Wednesday, April 1, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Garfield Community Center (2323 E. Cherry St.); and

April 9, from 6 to 8 p.m., at El Centro de la Raza (2524 16th Ave. S.).

To attend a workshop, RSVP at or or call (206) 733-9916. To request child care or interpretation services, contact us at least 3 days prior to your preferred workshop. 

The deadline for the Large Projects Fund is May 4 at 5 p.m. To learn more, visit

NMF awards matching funds for projects initiated, planned and implemented by community members. Every award is matched by a neighborhood’s contribution of volunteer labor, donated materials, in-kind professional services or cash.
