Citizens Bank is seeking applications to its $150,000 grant program to help revitalize neighborhoods in Massachusetts.

The bank plans to distribute grants of between $15,000 to $50,000 to projects that create jobs, support local economic activity, foster small businesses and improve neighborhoods. Citizens Bank launched this program in Ohio in 2010 and has since expanded it to other states in its network, including Michigan, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New York, and now Massachusetts.

The grant application deadline for the Massachusetts Growing Communities initiative is Sept. 19.
