4th Annual Love Thy Neighborhood Awards

We are helping celebrate people and organizations who are transforming their neighborhoods. Here to tell us about the Love Thy Neighborhood Awards is Tedd Grain, LISC Indy.

4th Annual Love Thy Neighborhood Awards:

LISC Indianapolis started the Love Thy Neighborhood Awards in 2017 to celebrate people and organizations that are transforming their neighborhoods, the community game changers that are making a difference. We wanted to tell the inspiring stories that are sometimes happening behind the scenes and don’t have a platform. Each category winner is awarded $2,500 in unrestricted funds to help further their mission.

LOVE stands for the 4 categories of Awards:
Livability – which includes access to art, nature, and recreation;
Opportunity – creating quality jobs and building human capital;
Vitality – Providing affordable and quality housing options and
Education – which encompasses K-12 education, as well as workforce development.
