About the Neighborhood Matching Grants Program
Neighborhood Matching Grants example - park benchThe Neighborhood Matching Grants Program has been helping Charlotte citizens improve their neighborhoods since 1993.  The program awards funds to eligible neighborhood-based organizations for projects that will make neighborhoods better places to live, work, play, and shop.  The program helps to strengthen neighborhood organizations, while encouraging increased neighborhood participation and partnerships with the city and others. Organizations are required to match the funds requested. The match must be directly related to the proposed project, and may be in the form of cash, volunteer labor, or in-kind donations (equipment, supplies, professional services, etc.).  Neighborhoods in Neighborhood Profile Areas with a median household income no more than $61,650 may be eligible to apply. 

Check your eligibility.  Enter your address or parcel ID, and your eligibility will be shown in the information bubble.

Grants are awarded four times a year and applications are accepted on February 15thApril 15th, June 15th and September 15th.

Effective May 15, 2011, the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood Matching Grants Program converted to an online grant application process. The new process makes applying for Neighborhood Matching Grants funds simpler and more convenient for organizations. Please make all grant requests through the online grant application.
