FY 2016-2017 (Cycle 2) Mayor's Matching Grant (MMG) Awards


In FY 2016-2017, the City of Orlando is awarding 14 grants totaling $77,000 in the second cycle of the Mayor's Matching Grant Program. This represents 9 awards to schools and 501(c)3 non-profit organizations (ranging from $3,500 to $10,000) and 5 awards of up to $5,000 to neighborhood organizations. All activities and projects will take place within the City of Orlando. The grant term will commence on July 1, 2017 and will be completed on or before June 30, 2018.

Schools and tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organizations are awarded matching grants up to $10,000 and are encouraged to partner with neighborhood organizations, community groups and business partners to offer programs that engage our City's youth in constructive, adult supervised activities during non-school hours. Neighborhood organizations are awarded matching grants of up to $5,000 to implement physical improvements, public safety or educational projects that benefit neighborhood residents. All grant awards are matched dollar for dollar by the applicant using a combination of volunteer labor, cash and/or in-kind donations of goods or services. The appropriation request serves the best interests of the City of Orlando and would not violate any local, state or federal law or state or federal constitutional provision.
