Together Because Attends Mixer for Citizens Committee Grant Winners

Ian with Arif Ullah, Director of Programs

To spend an evening with almost 400 other organizations making up THE GRASSROOTS of this city we call home was truly a gift. It is an honor to receive funding from Citizens Committee for NYC, which manages to fund community gardens, PTAs, and other neighborhood based groups in all 5 boroughs. Receiving this grant money and the incredible non-financial resources that come with it is an incredible opportunity for Together Because.

It is still so exciting to see our name in print!

We look forward to spending our $1,700 grant to organize residents in Sunset Park to found a new neighborhood association with the power to take action!

We will be doing extensive canvassing and neighborhood workshops in order to found a new neighborhood association by the end of October. 

If you are interested in getting involved, please write to and someone will reach out to you.
