About the Baltimore Clean Corps Initiative

Funded by the American Rescue Plan (ARPA), Clean Corps is a multi-agency project, led by the Baltimore City Department of Planning as part of the Baltimore Green Network initiative. Clean Corps works with five Baltimore-based nonprofits in partnership with 16 neighborhoods to clean and maintain community-selected vacant lots biweekly, alleys weekly, and public trash cans daily until January 25, 2025.

All five nonprofits have hire Baltimore un- or underemployed residents and begin to clean and care for community-selected sites, including maintaining vacant lots, alleys, and trash receptacles in partnership with the neighborhoods’ associations and residents.

A great resource is the video that Charm TV created about the work of the Clean Corps crews and the positive reactions from the neighborhood residents, leaders and elected officials.   Here is the link to that video:

Clean Corps Dasboard

Clean Corps has launched its public dashboard which allows everyone to see the lots and alleys that are being cleaned by Clean Corps crews in 16 neighborhoods.  At the user-friendly Clean Corps Public Dasboard, everyone can monitor the great work that the 16 Clean Corps crews are doing by cleaning community-selected alleys, cleaning and mowing vacant lots, and emptying public trash cans.   The dashboard includes pre- and post- photos of each of the lots, alleys and public trash can that Clean Corps crews are cleaning as well as each of the teams' schedule for the upcoming week.

Creating Strong Partnerships With the Neighborhoods

Clean Corps' mission is to work in partnership with the residents and leaders of the 16 neighborhoods.  The Clean Corps grantees are required to talk with the neighborhood associations' leaders on a weekly basis in order to get their input, expertise and wisdom on areas to address. Each of the 16 neighborhoods' residents determined the lots and alleys that the Clean Corps crews are focusing in their neighborhood with this initiative.

The Clean Corps neighborhoods are Arlington, Boyd-Booth/Fayette Street Outreach, Broadway East, East Baltimore Midway, Franklin Square, Greenspring and Westport with Baltimore Corps Fellow Lamar West at lamar.west@baltimorecity.gov as the Clean Corps contact. Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello, Darley Park, Druid Heights, Four by Four, Harlem Park, Penn North, Sandtown Winchester, and Upton with Phoebe Letsebe as the Program Manager at pletsebe@civicworks.com.
