City Cleanup Corps

The City Cleanup Corps (CCC) is a New Deal-inspired economic recovery initiative that supports communities, businesses, and tourism by refreshing and revitalizing public spaces. Through the collaboration of more than two dozen City agencies and community-based organizations, members of the CCC tend to the needs of neighborhoods by hand-sweeping public spaces, cleaning defaced properties, power-washing sidewalks, tending to green spaces, and creating community murals, among other efforts to help bolster New York City’s economy. Since its inception in April 2021, the CCC has employed more than 10,000 New Yorkers.
