Love Your Block

Congratulations to the 2014 Love Your Block Grantees!

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.  Resident-led volunteer groups receive a grant of up to $1,000 as well as access to City services from the Departments of Transportation, Parks and Recreation, and Sanitation. 

Past Love Your Block grantees have received assistance with City services such as trash collection, vacant lot cleanup, graffiti removal, dead tree removal, tree planting, providing wood chip mulch for gardening projects, repair of and installation of street signs and street lights, traffic safety surveys, and more.
