Love Your Block

Love Your Block offers mini-grants and neighborhood cleanups for beautification projects. 

In 2015, the City of Boston kicked off the Love Your Block mini-grant program thanks to Cities of Service. Love Your Block will now be a permanent Boston program, including: mini-grants, neighborhood 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.

What is Civic Engagement Week?

From April 24 - 29, the Love Your Block team will host a Civic Engagement Week as part of the Civic Engagement Cabinet.

Special Programming will highlight the City of Boston's Civic Engagement initiatives. The Mayor will have the chance to engage residents in the public process. We'll also share opportunities to stay informed and get involved.
