Love Your Block RFA - Due November 30th

Here is a great funding opportunity for local neighborhoods..... 


Love Your Block (LYB) is a special partnership between NYC Service and Citizens Committee for New York City that provides a unique opportunity for city residents to transform and beautify their neighborhoods and leverage City services. Resident-led volunteer groups (grantees) receive a grant of $1,000 to transform a city block.  LYB grantees also receive project-planning and community-building assistance, as well as assistance with local media coverage for the project.



The deadline for this year’s Love Your Block grants is Friday, November 30th.
