Clean Corps

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 six 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.

In February 2023, Mayor Scott kicked off the Clean Corps Initiative. By March 2023, all six nonprofits are expected to 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.
