The City of Cedar Hill in partnership with Neighborhood Advisory Board (NAB) created the Matching Grant Program to provide funding for a matching grant initiative for registered neighborhood organizations. Grant funding will be available on a 80/20 match basis for any qualified, neighborhood sponsored project/event(s). Matching funds may be in the form of cash, in-kind services such as donated supplies or equipment, and volunteer hours. Each neighborhood, with the exception* of those legally recognized as part of a Public Improvement District, will be eligible to receive one (1) grant per fiscal year (October 1 – September 30) budget period. Each application will be reviewed by the Neighborhood Advisory Board and their recommendations will be forwarded to the City Council for consideration and final approval.
