The City of Eugene Neighborhood Matching Grant cycle is open now through October 31st with $50,000 available for neighborhood improvement and community-building projects. Community involvement and building relationships are key components and are encouraged by requiring that the project budget include a match amount equal to, or greater than, the grant request. Demonstrating responsible stewardship of our community assets while balancing our community’s social and environmental values are additional components of any project proposal submitted.
Grant guidelines and application materials are available on the City’s web site, www.eugene-or.gov/nmg, and at the Permit and Information Center located at 99 W 10th or by calling Cindy Koehler at 541-682-5272.
A project description and estimated budget are required for the pre-review process to check for consistency with grant guidelines and existing plans and policies of the City and other partner agencies. Pre-review also ensures applicants submit a competitive final application.
The pre-review deadline is Monday, October 31, 2016. Final applications are due on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Awards will be announced in April 2017.
