Neighborhood Grants: Up to $3,000 for Your Community Group
Applications are due January 25 - start your application today !
Through the Neighborhood Grants, the Citizens Committee awards micro-grants of up to $3,000 to resident-led groups to work on community and school projects throughout the city. We prioritize groups based in low income neighborhoods and Title I public schools.
Recent awards have enabled neighbors to come together to make healthy food available in their communities, transform empty lots into community gardens, organize tenants to advocate for better housing conditions, and conduct community oral history projects.
Learn more about the grant on our website, look through previously funded projects, and attend a grant application workshop (listed below) or watch our step-by-step application video.
Help spread the word to your network and community - share the flyer, post to your facebook, and tell your gardening, organizing, and art-making friends! Questions? Contact Tehmina at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-822-9563.
Applications are due January 25, 2016; Applications can be submitted online or via email, fax, or mail.
