The City of Orlando is accepting applications to the Mayor’s Matching Grant program. Past funded projects have ranged from banners, entrance beautification, and science clubs, to puppet shows that teach kids bullying prevention.
Other projects have included movies in the park, wayfinding signage, and vegetable gardens.
There are two categories of grants offered through the program- grants for neighborhood organizations (neighborhood, resident owner, condominium and homeowner associations) and grants for schools and non-profit organizations. The organization’s match may come in the form of cash donations, volunteer labor (sweat equity), or in-kind goods or service donations toward the project.
Applications are accepted on a year-round basis.
