Love Your Block 2020 Application
Love Your Block (LYB) is a program that supports resilience and beautification projects designed by residents for their neighborhoods. Neighbors and volunteers design and implement projects with grants provided by the City of Pittsburgh. LYB helps neighbors get together and improve our communities by combating blight, creating assets and building resilience – block by block.

General Guidelines:

1. All projects must benefit the public and sites should be visible from the street or another public space.

2. There are different guidelines for private vs. public property.
-You can check who owns your proposed project site on the Allegheny county Real Estate Portal.
-If you would like to work on private property, we will need written permission from the property owner. A sample property permission form is available.
-If you would like to work on City property, we’ll help inform what the City will permit or what challenges may arise.

3. We encourage community art projects, however we do not recommend art projects on City property under the Love Your Block program.

4. All structures, on City or private property, are subject to the receipt of permits from Zoning and the Bureau of Building Inspection.
-Structures include fences, sheds, walls, and signs. All must be illustrated on a scaled site plan, at a minimum.
-In addition, if you require a permit, the project site must have an address. But don't worry; we will help you!

5. Many projects on City property will be subject to Art Commission approval. If you’ve never attended a public hearing, this is a great opportunity for you to learn how that process works!

6. Grantees may be eligible to purchase or rent equipment, however the equipment must remain under the ownership of a community group.
-Final approval of your budget is always subject to City approval.

7. While faith-based organizations may participate in Love Your Block, the City will not fund projects involving religious activity or practices.
-Make sure your proposed project would be inclusive and welcoming to all residents.
