About Love Your Block

Love Your Block is a mini-grant program to fund community-led projects unified around public assets on the West Side such as the Jordan River. Love Your Block is a Johns Hopkins University – Cities of Service grant program through the Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office.

Through this program, Salt Lake City will award mini-grants to support volunteer-fueled solutions developed by neighbors and community partners to reduce blight and spur neighborhood-driven change. Our area of focus for Phase One is in the neighborhoods surrounding Modesto Park and Bend in the River Park.

Love Your Block views blight as anything that displaces neighbors and sense of community.
