Citizens Committee for New York City “All In Neighborhood Grants”
An event every month that begins at 12:00 am on day 27 of the month, repeating until December 31, 2021
Grassroots organizations responding to the immediate needs of struggling New Yorkers will receive unrestricted grants of up to $10,000 to open food pantries, distribute surgical masks, arrange elderly check-ins, or design other projects to meet their neighborhoods’ urgent needs amid the COVID-19 crisis. This grant program is a renaming of our keystone Neighborhood Grants program, which for decades has been awarding micro-grants to resident-led groups to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Grants supported projects in arts, health, environmental justice, beautification, tenants’ rights, and more. CitizensNYC quickly shifted the focus of this program after findings of a survey we conducted of our extensive grassroots network highlighted five urgent priorities across the city: financial assistance, food, care for older adults, mental health care, and physical health care.
The application is now open and will be accepted on a rolling basis!
