Grant Description
Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, and neighborhood associations for programs and projects that benefit communities in eligible locations. Funding is intended for activities and programs that address neighborhood needs, improve education, and build community pride. Three types of matching grants are offered: Grants for schools and nonprofit organizations; grants for neighborhood organizations; and Traffic Art Box grants (for neighborhood organizations only). Eligible projects benefit the residents of Orlando.

Grant Types:

Applicants are encouraged to partner with local businesses, religious institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other community resources in the planning and implementation of projects. Both mandatory and voluntary neighborhood organizations may apply.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Public or Private Schools, and Federally Tax Exempt 501(c)3 Organizations may apply for the schools and nonprofits grant.

Mayor’s Matching Grants for neighborhood organizations are available to the City of Orlando neighborhood, homeowner, condominium, and resident associations (henceforth neighborhood organizations) whose primary purpose is neighborhood development. Both mandatory and voluntary neighborhood organizations are eligible to apply.

Applicant cannot be a current recipient of a Mayor’s Matching Grant and must be in existence for at least one year.

Special Note for Orange County Public Schools: Any Orange County Public School (OCPS) applying for a grant must have the OCPS Board as the legal applicant; therefore the OCPS Grant Development Office must approve the application prior to submission. OCPS Grant Development Services (GDS) staff will assist in developing the proposal and help obtain School Board approval of the application.
