Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants are available for groups in New York for programs and projects that enhance the quality of their local neighborhoods. Primary focus is upon projects that: are clear and thoughtful; address important community concerns; contribute to building stronger communities through neighbors working together; and result in concrete and sustainable improvements. The goal is to encourage communal support to pool efforts and build strong bonds among the city's residents. In the past, grants have been awarded for activities that enhanced local communities by focusing on beautifying the environment, recycling, or creating better housing conditions.

Applications are accepted from volunteer-led groups based primarily in low-income neighborhoods in all five boroughs of New York City. Groups may be long-standing, newly established or in the process of forming, and are not required to have non-profit or 501(c)(3) status. Groups without this status will need a fiscal conduit or a bank account if a grant is awarded.

In addition to grant funds, other support is available for groups such as project planning assistance and skills-building workshops. Help is also available to design strategies around a particular project or campaign, as well as to develop mission statements, work plans, and effective ways to engage new members.
