Cities of Service
Grants of $30,000 to USA cities to build and implement sustainable, high-impact plans to revitalize low-income neighborhoods through volunteer and organizational support. Informational sessions will be held on October 22 and November 5. Cities will receive support of financial and human capital to assist in the planning and implementation of the initiative.
The Cities of Service City Hall AmeriCorps VISTA Program is a competitive grant opportunity available to mayors that supports implementation of neighborhood revitalization initiatives based on Love Your Block, one of Cities of Service's most tested and popular blueprints. Cities of Service will provide both financial and human capital support to six cities for up to three years, including a $30,000 grant and two City Hall AmeriCorps VISTA members to support the planning and implementation of Love Your Block initiatives in low-income neighborhoods.
The planning portion of the grant will support a six-month process that engages key community stakeholders to identify (1) the health and safety needs of the community, (2) best practices and strategies for addressing these needs using the Love Your Block blueprint, and (3) impact metrics to measure the success of the initiative.
The implementation portion of the grant will provide the resources necessary to carry out Love Your Block, including mini-grants to support volunteer activities and testing of the strategies developed during the planning process. As part of this process, the AmeriCorps VISTA members will help mayors build capacity, engage community members, and develop plans to sustain and scale best practices.
Cities will receive a $30,000 grant from Cities of Service for the planning and implementation of the program. Cities will be able to allocate up to $5,000 for the strategic planning process of the grant and must submit a planning budget to Cities of Service as part of the application process. Cities selected to participate in the program must submit another budget after completion of the strategic planning process for the $25,000 implementation portion of the grant.
