Neighborhood Action Match Program (NAMP)

Since 1985, the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government has funded the Neighborhood Action Match Program to support neighborhood associations in carrying out development activities and improvements.

This has been done through the cooperative efforts and voluntary contributions of neighborhood individuals, businesses, schools and other organizations. Grants and Special Programs is responsible for managing this program.

FY20 application round is now open!

Grants and Special Programs is now accepting applications for Fiscal Year 2020 from eligible neighborhood associations located in Fayette County. The deadline for submission of an application to this program is 4 p.m., Friday, August 9, 2019.

The maximum program award to a neighborhood association is $10,000. The neighborhood association must match all funds it receives with an equal amount through cash contributions or donated materials, service or labor unless located in an eligible census tract. See guidelines for more information.
