Grant Program Information & Application Packet
Owasso is committed to the preservation and renewal of neighborhoods. A key component of the Owasso Strong Neighborhood Initiative is the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program.
The Neighborhood Matching Grant Program, administered by the Owasso Community Foundation, Inc. (OCF) is designed to provide matching funds to recognized neighborhood organizations within the Owasso city limit or to residents in the process of forming a neighborhood network.
Where do the Funds Go?
Grants can fund a range of beautification projects by providing a match to other funds including cash resources from the neighborhood group generated through fund-raising and pledges, volunteer labor, or donations in the form of materials and/or services. A specific project should give neighborhood-based organizations incentive to raise funds, build partnerships with businesses, and cultivate the spirit of volunteerism and community support needed to complete a project.
Grants are not allowed for deferred maintenance
Grants must provide a public benefit and be on public property
Grants will only be awarded to neighborhood-based organizations within city limits
