NEW YORK—The City Cleanup Corps (CCC), Mayor de Blasio’s New Deal-inspired economic recovery program, empowers city recovery through neighborhood beautification.

An alliance of many city agencies, the Corps will beautify and refresh neighborhoods in every borough.
The CCC will be conducting an intensive neighborhood cleanup in The Bronx this week. Members of the City Cleanup Corps can be easily identified by distinctive green shirts sporting the bright yellow logo of the program.
