City of Boston
Grants to Massachusetts residents and groups in eligible regions to support community beautification efforts. Grant funds may be used for promotional materials, food, or materials. Eligible projects include planting projects, improving community centers or parks, and installing public art. Projects must be completed within the City of Boston.
Love Your Block is a new neighborhood beautification program by and for residents. The Office of Neighborhood Services is offering mini-grants and coordinated city services to support groups of residents that design their own neighborhood improvement project.
Applications are invited for projects that meet a neighborhood need and have community support. For example: a community garden on a vacant lot to reduce loitering and litter and provide a community gathering space and fresh produce. Other examples are: park or community center improvements, creating a mini-park or plaza, tree or flower planting, a public art installation and more. Be creative! Get together with fellow residents and brainstorm what you’d like to see in your neighborhood.
Grant funds are for material costs such as tools, paint, seeds etc. Additionally funds may be used for printing promotional materials such as flyers or providing snacks for volunteers on project days.
