Matching Grants for Neighborhoods, Non-Profits

Mayor Kathy Taylor and the City of Tulsa Working in Neighborhoods Department and representatives from the Tulsa Community Foundation and George Kaiser Family Foundation announced a beautification matching grant program that will give all neighborhood and homeowners’ associations registered with the City of Tulsa or registered with a non-profit organization, the opportunity to receive money for a beautification project in their neighborhood.
The grants will fund various beautification projects by providing a dollar for dollar match from the Tulsa Beautification Foundation and George Kaiser Family Foundation with other locally-raised funds. Certain criteria for proposed projects must involve the neighborhood and community residents and have a standing sustainable benefit with a necessary plan in place before improvements start.
“Encouraging neighborhoods to get involved in beautification through this matching grant has been a goal that it is exciting to see us finally be able to launch,” Mayor Kathy Taylor said. “This gives citizens the chance to create and implement sustainable change in their neighborhoods.”
All applicants will then mail their application to the Tulsa Beautification Foundation to receive grant committee approval for their beautification project.
“We are excited to have the matching grant program in coordination with the City of Tulsa and look forward to start receiving applications for all neighborhoods or non-profits interested,” Phil Lakin, Board President of the Tulsa Beautification Foundation said. “This is a great way for citizens to get engaged in their neighborhood as well as cultivate the spirit of volunteerism in our community.”
