Love Your Block is a special partnership between Citizens Committee for New York City and NYC Service that provides a unique opportunity for city residents to transform and beautify their neighborhoods.  Love Your Block grantees will receive:

  • A grant of $1,000
  • Access to city services from the Departments of Transportation, Parks and Recreation, and Sanitation
  • Assistance with press for their neighborhood event

Previous Love Your Block grantees have included block associations, tenant associations, and neighborhood-based volunteer groups. With funding and city services, they have been able to clean graffiti and vacant lots, construct wooden tree guards, plant flowers in tree beds, remove litter, and much more. Love Your Block grants pay for materials for one-day neighborhood clean-up events during the spring or summer.

Join us for a grant application information session to learn about the grant and application process on February 4 at 6:30 PM.

Applications are due February 20, 2014.

Contact Tehmina with questions or to RSVP for the information session at tbrohi@citizensnyc.org or 212-822-9563.
