I would like to recognize all those working hard for their communities and direct them to grant opportunities being offered through the Citizens Committee for New York City. The grants are being given out for volunteer led groups and public school based student groups working to improve neighborhoods across the city. Applications are available through their website and by clicking on the link below.
In addition, the Citizens Committee for New York City also offers skill building workshops for the winter. The dates and times of these events are also available on their website.
Good luck and continue with your efforts in helping to improve your community.
