Neighborhood Grants

Through our Neighborhood Grants program, Citizens Committee for New York City awards grants of up to $3,000 for community and school improvement projects carried out by unstaffed resident-led groups to address issues they identify as important to them.

From West Farms in the Bronx to East Elmhurst in Queens, the groups we support work on projects as varied as community gardening, visual and performing arts, nutrition awareness, composting, beautification, tenant and immigrant organizing, public school recycling drives, physical fitness, public safety, and more!
