The City of Gaithersburg is now accepting applications for funding under the Frederick J. Felton Neighborhood Matching Grant Program. The program provides an incentive for neighborhood organizations to improve their communities by awarding dollar-for-dollar matching grants of up to $5,000. $60,000 is budgeted for this program in Fiscal Year 2013.
Neighborhood groups and associations have used these funds for such things as sidewalk enhancement, lighting upgrades, signage, fence replacement, parking lot enhancements, community block parties, and even neighborhood birdhouses.
Application forms are available below. The deadline to apply is Sunday, July 15, 2012.
For more information on the program, please contact Monica Sanchez in the City Manager’s Office at 301-258-6310.
