Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Department of Neighborhoods was created in 1991 by consolidating staff from the Executive Department's Citizens Service Bureau and Office of Neighborhoods, the Community Service Centers of the Department of Human Resources, and the Neighborhood Assistance Division of the Department of Community Development. The Office of Urban Conservation, the City's historic preservation agency, was added in 1992. The following year, the department added a community development function by taking over projects in the Central Area, Southeast Seattle, and the Port of Seattle. In 1999, the Neighborhood Planning Office was abolished and its continuing functions were assumed by the Department of Neighborhoods. The Department's mission is to bring local government closer to the citizens by maintaining a responsive presence in Seattle neighborhoods, by responding to citizen concerns and complaints, and providing a communications link for neighborhoods on City issues that will have an impact on them. The department operates the Neighborhood Service Centers (Little City Halls), administers the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program, staffs the Landmarks Preservation Board, and manages the P-Patch program.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Records relating to four different special funds administered by the Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) to benefit neighborhoods and involve youth. The NMF program, created in 1988, provides financial assistance for community-driven neighborhood development projects. The first special fund was Special Fund: Confronting Violence (SPV) that had total funding of $20,000, a maximum award of $1,000 per project, and the purpose of creating neighborhood-based efforts to address violence. The second fund was the It's All About Time for Kids Fund (KF), which also had a maximum award of $1,000 per project and focused on fostering volunteerism and increasing opportunities for youth and adults to constructively spend time together. The third special fund was the Young People's Call to Action (YPC), which focused on non-violence and accepting diversity among young people. The last is Youth Working in Communities (YWC), which was meant to fund youth-led projects that would prevent violence, physically improve schools and neighborhoods, and improve the social environment. Each project team was responsible for providing a matching portion of monetary donations, volunteer hours, or supplies. Projects included concerts in parks, potlucks, dances, memorials to slain teens, mediation training, mentor programs, firearms education, field trips to the Tulalip Reservation, tutoring programs, after school theater groups, murals, and multi-cultural events. Types of records include grant applications, agreements, progress reports, final reports, newspaper clippings, newsletters, and photos. Each file name contains the identification number assigned to the project by the Department of Neighborhoods.
