The City is now accepting applications for the Mayor’s Matching Grant. Neighborhood and non-profit organizations can apply for matching funding for programs and projects that benefit our community.
Since 1994, the City of Orlando has helped nonprofit organizations, schools and neighborhood associations better their communities by encouraging residents to create projects that address neighborhood needs, improve education and build community pride.
We strongly believe in the power and creativity of our citizens to address these challenges and build community in our City. With these beliefs in mind, the Mayor’s Matching Grant Program was created.
Through this program, eligible applicants are awarded with grants to develop projects that will make a positive and lasting impact in the City.
Neighborhood, condominium, resident and homeowner associations that are registered with the City of Orlando’s Office of Communications and Neighborhood Relations and have projects focusing on making physical improvements, public safety or educational programs that benefit neighborhood residents are eligible for the grants.
Public and private schools and non-profit organizations with projects that focus on educational enhancement, academic enrichment or youth programming in crime prevention and anti-violence are also encouraged to apply.
Applications for Mayor’s Matching Grants are currently being accepted through May 1. Active residents help make Orlando a great place to live and these grants help us address neighborhood needs.
– Buddy Dyer, Mayor
