title

AN ORDINANCE relating to the Neighborhood Matching Fund Program; establishing new program guidelines and an automatic carry-forward policy.

body

WHEREAS, Resolution 27709 and Ordinance 113750 first established the Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) Program more than 30 years ago; and

WHEREAS, the NMF Program has provided funding support for more than 5,000 community projects across the City of Seattle; and

WHEREAS, the City Council has periodically taken legislative action to amend the NMF Program’s policy and programmatic framework; and

WHEREAS, the NMF Program’s guidelines were last amended by Resolution 28835; and

WHEREAS, the implementation timelines for NMF-funded projects do not always align with a calendar year; and

WHEREAS, year-end carry forward of unexpended appropriations for NMF-funded community projects is subject to legislative approval, which can create uncertainty for community groups receiving NMF support for their activities; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SEATTLE, THE MAYOR CONCURRING, THAT:

Section 1. Attachment A to this ordinance, “Neighborhood Matching Fund Guidelines,” is adopted, replacing prior versions of Neighborhood Matching Fund guidelines.

Section 2. Appropriations by the Neighborhood Matching Fund Program for community projects shall not lapse and shall automatically carry forward each year until fully expended, abandoned, or reappropriated for other authorized activities. However, appropriations for the Management and Project Development program within the Neighborhood Matching Fund shall not be carried forward.

 

Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days after its approval by the Mayor, but if not approved and returned by the Mayor within ten days after presentation, it shall take effect as provided by Seattle Municipal Code Section 1.04.020.

Passed by the City Council the ________ day of _________________________, 2018, and signed by me in open session in authentication of its passage this _____ day of _________________________, 2018.
