Hurricane Relief Grant Offered

Apply Today for a Hurricane Relief Grant!
Citizens Committee for New York City is awarding grants of $2,000 to support volunteer-led hurricane relief efforts.
 
We are offering this short-term, high-impact grant opportunity because we understand that Sandy relief efforts go beyond the immediate aftermath. The grants are to help increase the overall capacity of volunteer groups to provide relief to hurricane-impacted areas and to support specific projects that address hurricane-related damage to community spaces (for example: waterfronts, sidewalks, school grounds, community gardens, parks).
 
The grants are for existing or newly formed volunteer-led groups. Citizens Committee will not award grants to individuals or families.
 
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, up to 11:59PM on Thursday August 1. We encourage groups to submit applications earlier.
 
Groups will be notified of our grant decision within 3 days of application submission. Grant checks will be distributed within 7 days of notification.
 
Approved projects must be completed by October 16, 2013.
