Small and Simple Projects Fund. The deadline for receipt of applications  is 5 p.m. on Monday, October 8, 2012.

The  Small and Simple Projects Fund provides matching funds of up to $20,000  to support community members as they work together to build a stronger and healthier neighborhood through civic participation.  Activities may be physical projects, as well as less tangible but equally significant educational, cultural, and relationship-strengthening activities.  To learn about the guidelines and application process, visit http://seattle.gov/neighborhoods/nmf/smallandsimple.htm.  To apply, groups need to register at webgrants.seattle.gov, a web-based application and fund management system.

This  is the final opportunity to apply to the Neighborhood Matching Fund in 2012. Programs and deadline dates for 2013 will be announced at the end of this year.

Since the program was created 24 years ago, the Neighborhood Matching Fund has awarded more than $49 million to neighborhood groups with a community match of more than $71 million.  Projects have involved more than 85,600 volunteers who have donated over 573,000 work hours.
