Mayor Domenic Sarno recently announced that due to the negative impacts of COVID-19 on Neighborhood Councils and their ability to connect with and provide services to residents, he was allocating $100,000 for each Neighborhood Council. The purpose of this grant is to stabilize neighborhood councils and their capacity, increase two- way communication beween city government, neighborhood councils and residents and to assist them in improving neighborhood conditions.
