PITTSBURGH, PA (May 18, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh is excited to announce applications are now open for 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 $1,500 in funds and the support of key City departments. Funding supports volunteer-fueled neighborhood improvement projects for Spring and Summer 2021.   

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.   

You can find more information and apply for Love Your Block at engage.pittsburghpa.gov/loveyourblock2021. Applications are due by June 14, 2021.  

Questions can be directed to Leah Friedman at leah.friedman@pittsburghpa.gov or Eric Williams at eric.williams@pittsburghpa.gov or by calling the Office of Community Affairs at 412-255-4773.
