Love Your Block

Love Your Block is a program that offers mini-grants and small cleanups for neighborhood beautification projects. 

In 2015, the City of Boston was awarded a three-year grant from Cities of Service. The grant kicked off the Love Your Block mini-grant program, continuing to be a high-impact service initiative today. We are excited to announce that Love Your Block will now be a permanent Boston program, including:

  • mini-grants
  • year-round cleanups (formerly Boston Shines), and
  • (eventually) community tool sheds.

As always, the Office of Civic Engagement continues to urge Bostonians to revitalize their neighborhoods, one block at a time.

To see what's happening around your neighborhood, follow us!
