Lansing was a participant in the Cities of Service Love Your Block program. Through the program, participating cities support the efforts of residents to revitalize their neighborhoods. Cities of Service provided each city with $25,000 and two years of technical assistance and placed two full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members in each city hall to build capacity for resident engagement.

Lansing has been a member of the Cities of Service coalition since 2015, when Mayor Virg Bernero signed the Declaration of Service. Mayor Andy Schor reaffirmed the city’s commitment to service by signing the Declaration in 2018.
