The Manhattanville Resident Green Committee received its first grant through Citizens Committee. With this grant we planted 5 community gardens in the development to beautify it and make it a more welcoming place to live and visit. Thanks to Citizens Committee, we will be able to plant more gardens and continue with this beautification project.

Hear from a few of our GRANTEES
We're eternally grateful to Citizens Committee for making our dreams for a greener Queens into a reality by gifting SustyQ with our first grant for The Critical Moss. Through these funds, we have been able to clean and green our neighborhood, install moss graffiti designs, and create guerrilla gardens as healing spaces which inspire interaction and action. The conversations and new friendships are blossoming like wildflowers!
For over four years, Citizen Committee has supported and guided our community building projects and grassroots advocacy in the Vernon & Throop and Tranquility Farm Gardens in Central Brooklyn. Without the help and support of Citizens Committee, grassroots advocacy groups like ours in New York City would not have been able to grow our respective organizations in fostering the ideals of sustainable practices and good citizenry.
Working with Citizens Committee has been such a wonderful experience for Feed Your Mind Music. With our grant award, we set up three workshops within the Bushwick, Park Slope and Flatbush sections of Brooklyn. The grant was instrumental in the purchase of music books and instruments for children in under- served communities. CCNYC is also a great resource for grassroots community based organizations like Feed Your Mind Music, providing no cost workshops, valuable information, professional advice and an excellent line of communication and follow up.
