Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust

The LANLT was founded in 2002 to address park and health inequities. Our mission is to contribute to the equity and well-being of neighborhoods through the development of parks, gardens, and community-driven organizing across greater Los Angeles. We focus our efforts in low-income communities of color that have little access to green space.

    Park Power: Equity and Justice in LA

    With this grant, we will plan, design and build more parks and gardens across LA County. As an urban park and garden land trust, we will expand access to greenspaces in under-resourced communities. We will organize events and celebrations at our parks and gardens to foster connections and cultural diversity. We will partner with community members to lead in development of new open spaces by offering leadership programs and technical assistance. By doing this, we will improve public health and well-being, and strengthen community resilience.

    Green and Open LAUSD Schoolyards

    Will you green and open schoolyards in your neighborhood? LA youth don't have equitable access to parks and the healing qualities of nature. Our public schools are a vital opportunity for kids to run and play. Most of the LA Unified's schoolyards are unshaded, covered in asphalt and uninspiring. Imagine if they were transformed into cool, nature-filled learning and play spaces that support health, academics, equity, and climate-resilience. What will it take to achieve this? All of us! We need your voice, your school, your involvement!
