What is the Neighborhood Matching Grants Program?

The Neighborhood Matching Grants (NMG) program, through a competitive process, awards matching funds to neighborhood-based organizations to help make Durham’s neighborhoods better places to live, work and play. Each applicant may request up to $2,500 in matching funds.
Since the grant program began in 2016, the City awarded a total of $75,000 to various neighborhoods in Durham. Your neighborhood could be next! Learn about a few of these resident-led projects in this news release
