Neighborhood Matching Grants

Project Opportunities

Charlotte’s Neighborhood Matching Grants Program provides matching grant funding to eligible neighborhood based organizations for projects that improve community quality of life. Because each neighborhood is unique, the program offers neighborhoods the opportunity to choose which project is right for them.

Neighborhood Matching Grants projects should be selected through collaboration of neighborhood residents and must provide benefit to the community overall. Project possibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Art & Beautification
  • Community Gardens
  • Festivals and Special Events
  • Marketing and Branding
  • Neighborhood Clean-Up
  • Organizational Development
  • Programming
  • Property & Curb Appeal Enhancements
  • Public Safety
  • Recreation
  • Resource Conservation
  • Signage

To learn more about project possibilities and helpful hints for certain project categories please review the program guidelines. If you need help planning your project or are unsure if your project qualifies, please contact the neighborhood liaison for your area.
