The Foreclosure Property Registry was established in 2010 to limit and reduce the deterioration of property located within the City of Jacksonville caused by foreclosure, and create a mechanism to protect neighborhoods from being blighted through a lack of adequate maintenance of homes going through the foreclosure process.

One of the strategies of the Foreclosure Property Registry is to address blight within our neighborhoods by providing funds to neighborhood organizations in the form of a matching grant. The City of Jacksonville’s Matching Grant Program is designed to give financial assistance to registered neighborhood organizations who are interested in reducing blight within their neighborhood and ultimately enhance their community.

A neighborhood organization, civic organization or community group that is located within Duval County and has been in existence for at least six months may apply for a grant up to $5,000. Matching funds or donations must equal or exceed the amount of the funds requested through the program. Qualifying matches include cash, sweat equity, volunteer labor hours and in-kind donations such as building supplies and materials. Collaboration with your neighbors and community leaders will be required.

Applications for the FY2020-21 Neighborhood Matching Grants Program are now available.
For your application please contact: Ray Eslinger at eeslinger@coj.net
Completed Applications are due on or before December 14, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  In order to answer questions and assist with the grant application process, the Neighborhoods Department will host a series of virtual workshops.  The workshops are not required but are highly recommended.
