Our Gardens for the City (GFTC) program’s mission is to work with community partners to create and provide gardens and other green spaces to low-income and/or underserved communities throughout New York City that will contribute to the environmental well-being of these communities and those who live there.
GFTC’s goal is to mitigate disparities that prevent these communities from accessing and utilizing green spaces and promote equity and social justice in areas that are often overlooked by these opportunities.
Applications for GFTC are accepted on a rolling basis. Submitting an application does not automatically qualify you to receive materials. We will contact you to organize a site visit to better understand your project details and follow up to be in touch if your project is selected.
January 2022 update: Due to the high volume of applications, all future GFTC inquiries will be considered for 2023. Thank you for your interest and patience.
