Partnerships for Parks - Grants of up to $1,500 for Community Groups

We’re thrilled to announce that our parent organization, City Parks Foundation, will be administering the new NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund to support both community groups and nonprofits that sustain, steward, and provide programming for parks, gardens, and green spaces across the five boroughs of New York City. 

The Fund provides grants that support stewardship projects, emergency needs such as personal protective equipment and enhanced sanitation measures, and remote volunteer training. Organizations and community groups of all sizes are eligible, with consideration given to budget and staff size, population and community served, amount of parkland sustained, and ability to serve as a resource to other organizations. Community groups are eligible for grants up to $1,500.

Nonprofit organizations with operating budgets over $10,000 must apply by June 1 and community groups with budgets typically $10,000 or less must apply by June 12. For more information, attend our FREE webinar.
