The maximum annual grant(s) to any community may not exceed a total of $5,000 for any fiscal year.
Approved grant funds not expended within 18 months of approval will be automatically recaptured and made available to other neighborhoods.
The program will be available to all Homeowners Associations, Condominium Associations, citizen associations, or any group that represents a majority of the residents in any given neighborhood.
With the exception of community identification signs and fencing, grants will not be awarded for replacement of existing features or routine maintenance.
Grants may not be awarded retroactively for projects that are underway or already completed.
Communities will be required to match dollar-for-dollar the amount of the grant. For the purpose of the communities match, in-kind donations and the value of volunteer labor will be considered.
Applications for the FY18 FJF Neighborhood Matching Grant Program will be accepted May 15 through July 15, 2017.
If a grant is approved, funds will be reimbursed to the community after the project or program is complete and is inspected by City staff.
