Grants and in-kind support to New York City nonprofit organizations for capacity building. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended for organizations to hire a program manager and enact intiatives serving local eligible communities. Funding is specifically intended for long-term commercial revitalization initiatives in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
During the three-year grant term, grantees will be supported in hiring a dedicated, full-time Avenue NYC Program Manager, who will participate in a cohort-based learning and training program, conduct an in-depth district assessment, and execute commercial revitalization programs and services. The district assessment findings will inform the programming activities the organization will implement during the remainder of the grant term. The goal of the new framework is to support partners’ capacity to develop more strategic, sustainable, needs-based programming and data-driven results for their commercial districts.
Avenue NYC programming and services must demonstrate an Area Benefit to low- and moderate-income persons in accordance with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) national objectives. Avenue NYC grantees must target commercial districts serving residential areas designated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. Designation prescribes that at least 51% of the residents in the census tracts surrounding the targeted commercial district (also known as the service area) must be low- and moderate-income persons living in households with incomes below 80% of the median household income ($63,350 for a 4-person household in 2010).
Over the course of the three-year contract, grantees will be required to dedicate award funds to hire a full-time dedicated Avenue NYC Program Manager). The balance of funds available each year can be used for project costs.

Grantees will be awarded up to $100,000 per year over three years for a maximum possible award of $300,000.
Grantees will be required to dedicate approximately $60,000 to $70,000 of their annual award towards personnel costs, including salary and fringe benefits for the Avenue NYC Program Manager, and necessary managerial supervision.
The contract term will begin on July 1, 2020 (CFY 2021) and extend three years, ending on June 30, 2023. The terms of the agreement will be reevaluated at the conclusion of each fiscal year before being approved for the following year. The second and third years of funding (CFY 2022, CFY 2023) are contingent on grantee performance, an assessment of the grantee’s progress towards multi-year goals for the organization and district, and the ongoing availability of Avenue NYC funding.
The Avenue NYC Program Manager is expected to begin work at the grantee organization by July 1st, 2020.
