About the Love Your Block Mini-Grant
Love Your Block is a community engagement program that supports resident led improvement projects and makes it easier for residents to connect with City leaders and resources. The mini-grants are offered specifically for projects that focus on reducing litter and addressing simple exterior home (facade) repairs in the focus neighborhoods shown in the map below. Interested residents, neighborhood groups and community organizations are invited to submit project proposals for a mini-grant ranging between $500-$2000. Projects that receive funding will be asked to attend a mandatory orientation and schedule a number of follow up conversations with the City to discuss the impact of your project.
- Painting house facades (doors, windows, porches, walls)
