Neighborhood Clean-Up Assistance Program
This is a City program that provides materials and supplies to community organizations and volunteer groups to clean up their neighborhoods. If your volunteer group wants to improve the appearance of your community by conducting activities such as a graffiti paintout, alley clean-up, or trash and weed removal from vacant lots, the City will provide the paint, materials, tools, and even a dumpster to help you accomplish your goal.
WHAT IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD CLEAN-UP ASSISTANCE PROGRAM?
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Community associations, neighborhood associations, and any volunteer groups organized to improve their neighborhoods.
WHAT SUPPLIES AND MATERIALS WILL THE CITY PROVIDE?
Paint and paint supplies for graffiti paintouts; brooms, shovels, rakes, gloves, and trash bags for neighborhood clean-ups. If needed, City staff will arrange for an industrial-sized dumpster for your use on the day of the clean-up. You must return the reusable materials so they can be used for other volunteer clean-up projects.
HOW DO WE APPLY?
Just call the Neighborhood Services Bureau at (562) 570-6866 and let us know what project your volunteer group wants to accomplish. Your organization will be provided with a "Request for Assistance" form to complete and return so that needed assistance can be arranged.
HOW MUCH ADVANCE NOTICE MUST WE GIVE?
At least two (2) weeks' notice prior to your event is recommended to insure that the Neighborhood Services staff has sufficient supplies on hand and time to order paint, if needed, to help you and other groups.Download a copy of the "Neighborhood Clean-Up Assistance Program" brochure - English
