ATTENTION: NY For Better Neighborhoods Grants Available!

Citizens Committee for New York City has released the application for their New Yorkers for Better Neighborhoods Awards. Volunteer-led community groups, as well as public school-based student groups, are encouraged to apply for grant funding up to $3,000 to support neighborhood improvement projects in their communities. The grants are an important resource for community groups, particularly in low income areas. Recent awards have enabled neighbors to come together to make healthy food available in their communities, transform empty lots and school lawns into community gardens, organize tenants to advocate for better housing conditions, and start school recycling programs. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2012.

Applications are also available on the Citizen's Committee website at

The Citizens Committee is offering 6 information sessions to assist groups who may be applying for a grant. The dates for these sessions are listed below. RSVP is required for each workshop, as space is limited.
