The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) Program awards matching funds for projects initiated, planned, and implemented by community members in partnership with Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. Its overall goal is to build stronger and healthier neighborhoods through community involvement and engagement. Every award is matched by a neighborhood’s contribution of volunteer labor, donated materials, in-kind professional services, or cash.

    Your date for the first workshop is wrong. It’s the 4/19. You’ve got it correct in the text, just not the headline.

    Hm, not sure what you mean. There’s no date in the headline. The announcement is dated April 17 in bold; is that what you’re thinking is the wrong date? At any rate, you’re right, the workshop date is April 19.
