Love Your Block

servePGH's Love Your Block program aims to revitalize Pittsburgh - block by block! Here's how it works: Nonprofit organizations from across Pittsburgh are invited to propose projects to transform their blocks with up to $1,000 in funds and donated supplies and the support of key City Departments. After competitive projects are selected, city agencies engage with awarded group members and listen to their block improvement requests. With grant money and city agency support, the selected groups purchase equipment and supplies, engage their neighbors, and roll up their sleeves to carry out their own brand of block beautification and repair.

Pittsburgh has expertly implemented several rounds of Love Your Block; working closely with nonprofit and city partners, Pittsburgh’s volunteers have revitalized 390 city blocks, removed 34,927 pounds of litter, created 256 green spaces, and recruited 4,571 volunteers through the program. Pittsburgh's Love Your Block program is supported by Peoples Gas, PNC, and The Home Depot, East Liberty Branch. In addition, this program is supported by the AmeriCorps VISTA program from the Corporation for National Community Service.
