Clean & Green has been a program at the Land Bank since 2004. Through the program community groups seasonally maintain concentrated clusters of vacant lots held by the Land Bank. Each group maintains at least 25 lots every three weeks and receives a stipend of at least $3,000. Learn more about how community groups improve the appearance of the neighborhoods and provide jobs for local residents by watching this five-minute video!
Groups are selected to participate in the program through a competitive application process. The Clean & Green program is supported through grant funding.
