Love Your Block

Apply for a Mini-Grant

The Love Your Block 2023 mini-grants will fund small projects that can be accomplished in short time frames. 

Lincoln Park and Hillside residents are invited to apply for $500 to bring neighbors together to care for and connect with the people on their block. Projects could include hosting a clean-up with a dumpster, trimming overgrown vegetation, painting a porch, or gathering around a campfire in conversation. All projects must invite/include residents of the neighborhood or block. Funds will support material and service costs only.
