Neighborhood 360° Grants support projects that strengthen and revitalize the streets, small businesses, and community-based organizations that anchor New York City neighborhoods. Grants up to $500,000 are awarded to community-based development organizations in each eligible neighborhood for organizations to staff, plan, and implement customized commercial revitalization programs over multiple years.
Neighborhood 360° grants provide funding to nonprofit organizations to address key findings and commercial revitalization opportunities identified in each Neighborhood 360° Commercial District Needs Assessment (CDNA).
Neighborhood 360° Grants aim to help organizations grow and implement high-quality commercial revitalization services through dedicated funding for personnel and programmatic expenses.
Applications for the 2016 cycle of the Neighborhood 360° Grants are currently closed. Grant awardees will be announced in Winter 2017.
Applicants will be awarded based on a number of factors, including their experience in commercial revitalization and community development, demonstrated understanding or prior work on core issues in each neighborhood, alignment between proposed projects and priority needs as indicated through the Neighborhood 360° Commercial District Needs Assessment (CDNA), and capacity for meaningful community engagement and outreach.
