Overview


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)  provides 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?


County Estates Sign AfterGrants can fund a range of beautification projects by supplementing 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.  Projects 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.
