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).
Grants support projects that strengthen and revitalize the streets, small businesses, and community-based organizations that anchor New York City neighborhoods. Grants are awarded to community-based development organizations in eligible neighborhoods for organizations to staff, plan, and implement customized commercial revitalization programs over multiple years. For information on Neighborhood 360° grantees, please see below.
In 2017, the NYC Department of Small Business Services announced the N360° grant awardees.
Applicants were 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. The following nonprofit organizations were selected from each borough to deliver a suite of commercial revitalization programs and projects.
