Matching Funds: The neighborhood/community must match the grant award with contributions of volunteer labor, donated materials, professional services, and/or cash. All projects require a 1 to 1 match ratio (1:1) which means $1 in value of neighborhood match is contributed for every $1 dollars in money granted by the City. Documenting match is very important and match pledge forms should be submitted no later than the end of the project date to the Healthy Communities Division. See attached matching document form.
City staff reviews Healthy Lynnwood Grant for approval. All projects must benefit the community - no project shall be for the benefit of any individual or private entity. Projects that require ongoing funding will not be considered for funding. Projects must be completed within the calendar year they are approved.
