Dear Neighborhood Association:
The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government is requesting applications for the FY 2023 Neighborhood Action Match Program. The funds are to match voluntary contributions raised by neighborhood associations, individuals, businesses and other organizations to support eligible neighborhood associations in carrying out community activities. This program is an excellent way for neighborhoods to maximize their resources by working in partnership with the local government.
Applications are due by 5:00 pm, Friday, August 12, 2022. Neighborhood Associations must be incorporated and in good standing with Kentucky’s Office of the Secretary of State to apply. The application materials detail other requirements and eligible program activities. The maximum award to a neighborhood association is $10,000. The LFUCG anticipates making award announcements by September 30, 2022.
Applications will be accepted only online through Neighborly Software. The online portal and instructions can be accessed here: https://www.lexingtonky.gov/neighborhood-action-match-program-namp. Associations should ensure their contact information is up to date on the LFUCG list of active neighborhood associations by visiting: https://www.lexingtonky.gov/find-your-neighborhood-association.
Neighborhood associations located in eligible census tracts may apply for a reduced match commitment. Match must be at least 10% of the total project cost if the neighborhood association is in a qualified census tract. Qualified census tracts are located on page 6 in the guidelines located at: https://www.lexingtonky.gov/neighborhood-action-match-program-namp.
