What Would Your Community Do with $1,000?

April 12 is the Deadline for Grant Applications

Neighborhood associations could receive up to $1,000 in a matching grant for projects promoting community involvement and connectivity.

Applications are being accepted through Thursday, April 12 for Rockville’s Organizing Communities and Neighborhoods (ROC-N) Matching Grant Program. The program is designed to support and empower neighborhood groups and encourage participation by community members. Projects meet one or more of the following:

  • Strengthen and improve neighborhood organizations and community groups.
  • Improve the appearance of Rockville’s communities.
  • Advance inter-neighborhood or community cooperation.

Qualified organizations, including PTAs, could receive up to $1,000 and must provide a cash or in-kind match equal to or greater than the grant amount requested. At least 25 percent of the match must be volunteer hours. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Funding is limited.

Projects are evaluated based on the neighborhood’s ability to provide a funding match, the level of community involvement, project readiness and the tangible community benefit. Projects are evaluated and selected for funding by a committee of City of Rockville staff.
