Love Your Block offers resident-led volunteer groups a cash grant of $500-$1,000 to transform a city block. Citizens Committee also provides each group with project-planning and community-building assistance, as well as assistance with local media coverage for the project. The City of New York matches the grant by providing services from the Departments of Parks and Recreation, Transportation, and Sanitation to help improve the block. Examples of these city services include trash collection, vacant lot cleanup, graffiti removal, dead tree removal, tree planting, providing woodchip mulch for gardening projects, repair of and installation of street signs and street lights, and traffic safety surveys.”
