About 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 $2,500 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.
