We are the leading organization in New York City to offer funding to grassroots groups—groups such as block associations, tenant associations, gardening groups, and groups that do not have a 501(c)(3) status— working on quality-of-life issues.
We support residents to work on specific projects that help to bring neighbors together, and on the issues that they identify as important to their communities.
Our Community Grants are grants of $500-$3,000 for community improvement projects ranging from community gardening and arts initiatives to tenant organizing and school recycling drives. We prioritize grants to community-led efforts in low-income neighborhoods and Title I schools. Applications are due January 31, 2013. Questions? Contact Arif at 212-822-9580.
Our Hurricane Relief Grants are grants of up to $5,000 for volunteer-led groups providing relief to areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and we will stop accepting applications on December 31. Groups will be notified of decisions within a week of submission. Questions?
