Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for New York City organizations to design, develop, and maintain public spaces and pedestrian areas, with an emphasis on sites in neighborhoods that lack open space. Funding may be used for the creation of neighborhood plazas that upgrade underused public areas and transform them into accessible, vibrant public spaces or easily walkable destinations. DOT will fund the design and construction of the plaza, and apply funds directly to selected plaza projects.

With community input through public visioning workshops, NYC DOT assists partners in developing a conceptual design appropriate to the neighborhood. A professional team of designers then uses the conceptual design to create formal plans. Partners are involved throughout the design process. Possible amenities may include tables and seating, trees and plants, lighting, bike racks, public art, and drinking fountains.

Partner organizations are responsible for the following:

  • Outreach
  • Maintenance
  • Insurance & Indemnification
  • Design
  • Programming & Events
  • Budget
