The Citizens Committee for New York City is accepting proposals to support NYC low-income communities and schools.
Grants of up to $3,000 are available to New York City resident-led groups to work on community and school projects.
Priority will be given to groups based in low-income neighborhoods and Title I public schools. Examples of previous awardees include block associations, tenants’ associations, civic groups, community gardens, student groups, PTAs, and many others.
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 start school recycling drives.
Applicants have the option to attend one of several information sessions held November 12 through January 19; and to submit an application draft for review by January 8.
