Love Your Block
Love Your Block is a City of Pittsburgh mini-grant program that brings neighbors together to improve our communities by combating blight, creating assets, and building resilience - block-by-block.
Nonprofit organizations across Pittsburgh are invited to propose projects for up to $5,000 in funds and the support of key city departments. Funding supports volunteer-fueled neighborhood improvement projects.
Projects may include but are not limited to : community garden maintenance, neighborhood clean-ups, or tree and flower planting. Successful projects will build strong partnerships, leverage donations, and most importantly, engage neighbors.
Here's How it Works:
Step 1: Community Organizations and Non-Profits apply for Love Your Block
Step 2: Love Your Block mini-grants are awarded by Department of Public Works Community Programming
Step 3: Organizations complete their projects with the support of key City departments
Step 4: Organizations are reimbursed by the City of Pittsburgh after project implementation
