Matching Grants
Neighborhood Matching Grant Program
Fishers accepts applications for its Neighborhood Matching Grant Program, which awards funds to older established neighborhoods within the municipal limits as an incentive to plan and complete beautification and enhancement projects. This is a competitive grant with limited funding. Neighborhoods are eligible for up to a 50% match up to $5,000. Applications are accepted annually between mid-December and the beginning of March.

Each Neighborhood Matching Grant application received is reviewed by the Neighborhood Matching Grant Committee . The committee’s recommendation is provided to the council, generally at the first regular May council meeting for review and approval. After council approval in May of the recommended projects, all awarded applicants are notified and have until the first business day in November to complete their project and submit proof of completion for reimbursement. Please see the calendar on the right for the current timeline.
