Funding Opportunity for 2024 NYC Green Fund: Pathways Program

Applications are now open for the 2024 NYC Green Fund: Pathways grant program, which supports efforts to build a more equitable and vibrant park and open space system in New York. Please take a look at the guidelines as you consider how your work might align with the Pathways program. The application will be a two-step process: A Letter of Inquiry (LOI), later followed by a full application for those invited to submit. LOI’s are due on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 12:00P ET.

Projects must support efforts to build a more equitable and vibrant park and open space system in one or both of two main ways below. Success would entail the City’s adoption of systemic tools which result in more funding for and greater power-sharing with less-resourced communities, parks and partners.

 

  1. By enabling sustained funding for New York City’s parks and open spaces and their non-profit partners.

  2. By implementing system-wide policies and programs that bring long-term sustainability for non-governmental partners.

Please note that past grantees must submit final reports prior to applying for additional funding.
