Clean Sweeps

Featured City

Buffalo, NY

Clean Sweeps

With the Cities of Service Love Your Block blueprint as a resource, Buffalo has revitalized communities through regular Clean Sweeps. With the help of AmeriCorps NCCC members, volunteers, area residents, and community-based organizations, the city has worked to eliminate blight, reduce crime, and provide social services. Revitalization efforts include: boarding up abandoned structures, removing graffiti and debris, trimming trees and grass, repairing signs, filling potholes, and much more. 

To learn more about Clean Sweeps, check out this July 2016 article published in Route Fifty about the initiative.
