Whether you’re organizing for tenants’ rights or laying the groundwork for a children’s arts program, neighborhood initiatives usually have one thing in common: they require funding.
That's where Citizens Committee comes in. We offer micro-grants for your community building projects. The funds come from a combination of private foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donations. We take care of raising the money, so you can carry out your project.
In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Citizens Committee launched a grant program specifically to support neighborhood groups to carry out critical rebuilding work that would be necessary beyond the emergency stage.
