About the Love Your Block Mini-Grant

Love Your Block was formed as a program that brings residents together to complete projects in their neighborhood. While the physical projects focused on trash and blight remediation, community and capacity building are also a key component. The goal is to help people get to know their neighbors and complete projects that they deem important. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted this program, but there are still plenty of ways to build community and help out our neighbors.


We know there is still an opportunity to build community, even if we can’t physically come together.  We hope to give out twenty $500 grants to community members who have come up with creative ways to build community during these times of social distancing. Whether that is picking up essentials for those who cannot go to the store, leaving notes of encouragement on neighbors doorsteps, or other more creative ways of helping your community during these times, we want to help support you!


So fill out this application to show us how you could use some funds to build community and help your neighbors!
