Important update about your 2020 Neighborhood Grant application

Hello friend and fellow New Yorker,

We hope you're doing well and staying safe! This message is a follow-up to communication we sent in late March to all 2020 Neighborhood Grant applicants.

We will not be announcing our Neighborhood Grant decisions at the end of April as planned. With each passing day, it is becoming more clear that meeting in person to carry out projects may not be advisable in the coming weeks or even months. Therefore, Citizens Committee for New York City is pivoting to focus on projects related to the COVID-19 crisis. 

We will be in touch by the end of May to provide an update on your application. In the meantime, if your group is carrying out COVID-19 relief projects (e.g., calling neighbors, delivering food, providing online mental health workshops, etc.), please let us know using this link.

Thank you for understanding and for your patience during this time. Stay safe and be well.


All the best, 

Citizens Committee for New York City
