During the summer of 2020, the NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund awarded 194 grants to nonprofits and community groups that provide essential maintenance, stewardship, public programming, and management of parks and open spaces across the five boroughs of New York City.
A recent review by the Central Park Conservancy’s Institute for Urban Parks looked closely at critical parks and open space-related issues in New York City at the request of the NYC Green Fund [see report here]. The resulting report and subsequent discussions with practitioners provided guiding areas to strengthen the parks and open space sector.
The NYC Green Fund focuses on supporting innovation and systemic changes that will enable New York City to manage open space more effectively, equitably, efficiently, and collaboratively. Collaborative Funding Opportunity with the NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund is accepting letters of interest here until 11:59pm on January 19, 2021.
The NYC Green Relief & Recovery Fund is intended to grow, and we encourage those interested in supporting this work to donate now or contact NYCGreenFund@cityparksfoundation.org for more information. Read the latest press release here and see recent press coverage here.
