Love Your Block is a program created by servePGH, Peoples Gas, PNC and The Home Depot (East Liberty Branch) to revitalize our City - block by block! Here's how it works: Nonprofit organizations from across Pittsburgh are invited to propose projects to transform their blocks with up to $1,000 in funds and donated supplies and the support of key City Departments. Competitive projects will be selected, after which City agencies will engage with awarded group members and listen to their block improvement requests. They will then proceed to carry out the requested services, as feasible. With grant money, the selected groups purchase equipment and supplies, engage their neighbors, and roll up their sleeves to carry out their own brand of block beautification and repair.
Make sure you rally volunteers and put forth your best effort as there is an award of $2,000 given to the most impressive block transformation, to be used by the winning community group for future site improvements.
The City of Pittsburgh is grateful to Peoples Gas, PNC and the East Liberty branch of The Home Depot for its investment in Love Your Block and its national commitment to vibrant and sustainable communities.
