March 24, 2017 April 15 is the Deadline for ROC-N Grant Applications Rockville, Maryland, March 22 – Neighborhood associations could receive up to $1,000 in a matching grant for projects promoting community involvement. Applications are being accepted through Saturday, April 15 for Rockville’s Organizing Communities and Neighborhoods (ROC-N) Matching Grant Program. The program is designed to support and empower neighborhood associations and encourage participation by community members. Projects must address one or more of the following: • Neighborhood outreach and organizing. • Social events aimed at fostering community pride. • Neighborhood crime prevention. • Neighborhood preservation. • The acquisition of technology or supplies to support an existing community program. • Neighborhood planning. Qualified neighborhood organizations, including PTAs, could receive up to $1,000 annually and must provide a cash or in-kind match equal to or greater than the grant amount requested. Applications are accepted twice a year, in April and October. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Funding is limited. Projects are evaluated based on the neighborhood’s ability to provide a funding match, the level of community involvement, project readiness and the tangible neighborhood benefit. Projects are evaluated and selected for funding by a committee of City of Rockville staff. The ROC-N Matching Grant Program is built on the premise that people who live in a neighborhood are its most valuable resource and are best able to identify the community’s needs, make improvements or solve problems.
