Purpose and Activities

The organization mobilizes New Yorkers to improve their neighborhoods by providing thousands of block, tenant, and community- and faith-based volunteer groups with the training, small grants, and technical assistance they need to take action and make a difference in their own neighborhoods; the committee also focuses its efforts on improving the urban environment, ending poverty, and increasing civic population, helping to solve both the large and small problems that plague all New Yorkers.
