Neighborhood Matching Fund Open House

I'm still all a-flutter about the NMF Open House. It's Unpaving Paradise's biggest grant, and this year the field is very full and very competitive. Our open house was just for the central area of the city, and we had groups working to renovate the Polish Center, establish a community center at the old MLK school, create a program to empower children through screenwriting, fund a Multimedia Resources Training Institute for the East African community, and put together a plan for a new outdoor pool in Northeast Seattle. Lots of motivated people, lots of good projects. I just hope there's enough money to go around.
