The Outreach Program works to spur more community support for and involvement in the Bronx River and its parks. The program works to strengthen, support, and start "Friends of the Bronx River" groups; link them together so that they can learn from each other and be stronger collectively; and promote the Bronx River in general so that people will be more likely to join in efforts to restore and reclaim the River.
The Outreach Program can help you start a "Friends of the Bronx River" group, plan a river event, and fundraise for river restoration. The Program also helps organizations identify and apply for grants to help build and strengthen the groups along the Bronx River.
