If you’re interested in gaining on-the-ground experience with neighborhood revitalization, here’s your shot.

The NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) launched its application for the Neighborhood 360º Fellowship program earlier this week.

The program supports commercial revitalization projects across the city. It pairs fellows with community-based organizations, such as Sunnyside Shines BID, that offer dedicated support for the projects.

The full-time, paid fellows will work on the revitalization project for over 10 months.

The deadline for the second cohort of the Neighborhood 360º Fellowship is Sunday, March 12th.

“Vibrant neighborhoods help make New York a dynamic and exciting place to live,” said SBS Commissioner Gregg Bishop. “These fellows will lead impactful commercial revitalization projects in small business corridors across the five boroughs that will benefit our communities and our residents.”

Here are the community organizations hosting Neighborhood 360º Fellows:

  • Jerome-Gun Hill BID, Bronx
  • WHEDco, Bronx
  • FAB Alliance, Brooklyn
  • LDC of East New York, Brooklyn
  • Chinatown Partnership, Manhattan
  • Lower East Side Partnership
  • Asian Americans for Equality, Queens
  • Sunnyside Shines, Queens
  • Northfield Community LDC, Staten Island
