Through their Neighborhood Grants, Citizens Committee awards micro-grants of up to $3,000 to unstaffed resident-led groups to work on community and school projects throughout the city. We prioritize groups based in low income neighborhoods and Title I public schools.
Recent awards have enabled neighbors to come together to make healthy food available in their communities, transform empty lots into community gardens, organize tenants to advocate for better housing conditions, and start school recycling drives.
Applications are due January 23rd.
