Love Your (NYC) Block Contest, Applications due February 15

Mayor Bloomberg and Citizens Committee for New York City invite your volunteer-led neighborhood group to apply for a $1,000 cash award to transform the public spaces on your block. Twelve groups from across the five boroughs will be selected as finalists, and each will receive a $1,000 grant to beautify their block. The group that demonstrates the most impressive transformation will win an additional $3,000 to be used toward future block improvements. The groups will be supported by services from multiple City agencies, including the Mayor’s Office and the Community Affairs Unit; and the departments of Transportation, Sanitation, and Parks. For more information, visit www.citizensnyc.org or contact Saleen Shah at 212.989.0909 or sshah@citizensnyc.org.
