Clean Corps Service Dashboard: Tracking our Progress
Clean Corps has launched a service dashboard that allows all of Baltimore City’s residents to follow the progress of the Clean Corps crews in their 16 targeted neighborhoods over time. Now everyone can view the before and after photos of work completed by the Clean Corps crews as they clean and mow vacant lots, clean alleys, and empty public trashcans on a daily basis to create a cleaner Baltimore.

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. 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 hired unemployed or underemployed Baltimore City residents to clean and maintain community-selected sites, including maintaining vacant lots, alleys, and trash receptacles in partnership with the 16 neighborhoods’ associations and residents.
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
