Love Your Block

Love Your Block is an initiative of NYC Service in partnership with Citizens Committee for New York City that provides a unique opportunity for neighborhood groups to transform and improve their communities through local action while leveraging City services. 

Resident-led volunteer groups receive a grant of up to $1,000 and City services provided by the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Sanitation of New York to help improve their block.  In addition to the grant and City services, groups receive project planning and community building assistance as well as support with local media coverage for the project.

Congratulations to our 2016 Love Your Block Grantees!

Thanks to our generous funder Citi.
