The City Of Duluth has announced another year of the Love Your Block program is underway. That means another year of resident-led neighborhood projects, community connections, and collaboration between neighbors and city staff.

The City says that Love Your Block 2023 will host a learning series and service days, providing mini-grants for residents to complete improvement projects on their block.

It's a great incentive to improve Duluth in a variety of ways. Focus topics for Love Your Block 2023 include abandoned waste and trash, home repairs, trees, and community connections.

The City adds that residents and community organizations in Central Hillside and Lincoln Park are eligible to apply for $500 mini-grants by June 1, 2023, to fund the following projects: community clean-ups, hosting a community gathering, trimming overgrown trees and bushes, planting trees, and performing minor home repairs.
