Whether it’s a neighborhood garden, a community swap, or a tool lending library, the Center for a New American Dream knows that your block, street, or neighborhood has an exciting project just waiting to come to life. We’re here to help make that a reality through the Get2gether Neighborhood Challenge. The Get2gether Neighborhood Challenge is an opportunity for New Dream Teams across the country to raise funds for projects to improve their neighborhoods. Through the Challenge, your team could receive $2,000 or more to support your community project. Applications due July 15, 2013. Learn more at http://newdream.org/neighborhoodchallenge.

New Dream has partnered on the Neighborhood Challenge with ioby, a crowd-resourcing platform for citizen-led, neighbor-funded projects that make neighborhoods stronger and more sustainable. On ioby, anyone with a good neighborhood idea can raise tax-deductible donations, recruit local volunteers, and share ideas with a like-minded community. So let’s get started!
