Love My Neighbor grants, art projects to be discussed in Allentown sessions


There will be a general information session for the Love My Neighbor Grant program at WorkhardPGH, 744 E. Warrington Avenue on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 6-8 p.m. 

Love My Neighbor! Is an initiative founded by Neighborhood Allies that invests in resident-led projects which aim to improve neighborhoods and engage fellow neighbors. Residents, who live in one of the target communities, including Allentown, Beltzhoover and Knoxville, and are passionate about making a positive change in their neighborhood, can apply for small grants ranging between $500 – $2,500.

Residents can apply online at or download the form and handwrite the application.

According to the website, “through providing the necessary resources and technical assistance directly to residents, Love My Neighbor! aims to unleash the untapped potential and passions in our neighborhoods and create visible and positive wins in the neighborhoods.”

Those who can’t make the event can still apply for the grant, but are still urged to attend the general information session. 

Also, the next Allentown Monthly Meeting is Wednesday, Feb., 15, 6 p.m. at the Hilltop Alliance, 831 E. Warrington Avenue, second floor, enter through the door in the rear of the parking lot.

This is a project with Hilltop Men’s Group, Office of Public Art, and Neighborhood Allies. They are looking for specified input from Allentown residents, Mr. Simon has previously presented to Knoxville and Beltzhoover already. 

Jolie Valentine will be talking about a public parklet project in the 800 block of E. Warrington Avenue as well.
