Join the Clean Streets LA Challenge!
Do you care about keeping your streets clean but don’t have the resources or information about how to make a difference? According to the Clean Streets Index, do you live or work on a street with a “cleanliness score” that needs improving? The Clean Streets LA Challenge is the ultimate civic experience for you! The Challenge provides:
- Information on how to maximize City resources in your community
- Networking opportunities with key Clean Streets LA stakeholders
- Training on how to host Clean Streets LA events in your neighborhood
- Assistance in developing a Clean Streets LA community plan
- Access to a Clean Streets LA cash prize to fund community clean-ups
Interested Neighborhood Councils and other organizations that attend workshops will receive guidance on how to prepare and execute a Clean Streets LA Community Partnership plan, and may be selected to receive Clean Streets LA financial awards to support your efforts.
Clean Streets LA Challenge workshops will be hosted throughout the summer, and the challenge runs until the end of the year.
In order to meet upcoming deadlines, we are requesting that each Neighborhood Council, Alliance, and NC committees agendize this item for discussion and action at your June and July meetings. We want you to take full advantage of this opportunity to collaborate with community groups and be eligible for cash prizes.

The City's Bureau of Sanitation drove all of LA's public streets and alleys (traveling over 22,000 miles!) and gave each block a "cleanliness score" from 1-3.
