LOVE YOUR BLOCK GRANT AWARDS
Love your block? Show it! Citizens Committee for New York City and the Office of the Mayor invite your volunteer-led neighborhood group to apply for a Love Your Block Grant Award. Grants of $500 to $1,000 are awarded for block improvements that can be used toward various neighborhood renovations, such as cleaning vacant lots, planting tress in empty tree beds, and removing graffiti. In addition your group will have the opportunity to access specific city support that will help revitalize your block, including services from the Department of Transportation, Sanitation and Parks & Recreation. Plus, Citizens Committee for New York City will assist your group with local media coverage of your event!
