About the Community Matching Fund

The Community Matching Fund was established as part of the Tumwater City Council’s strategic priority to build a community recognized for both quality and to encourage citizens to engage with their communities. Through this program, the City of Tumwater will match neighborhood or community group’s resources of volunteer hours, in-kind donations, or cash resources with funds based on the following limits:

Note: All funding is subject to approval and fund availability within an application cycle

PROJECTS: up to a maximum of $1,000 or 50% of the total project cost


EVENTS: a maximum of $250 or 50% of the total event cost  

How Do I Get Involved?

The Community Matching Fund makes grants available through two programs:

Neighborhood Project Grants:  Our next application cycle will be open in January, 2018
Neighborhood Event Grants: Applications are accepted year-round

How Do I Apply?
