Are you a LEAP partner and are in need of partner materials? Looking for resources to support your community project or grow your business idea? Look no further, we are here to help!


The LEAP Beautification System is designed to grassroots resident groups, block clubs, and associations within the LEAP boundaries with the maintenance of vacant lots and implementation of beautification projects in their community. Through the deployment of landscaping services, blighted and vacant lots will receive mowing and planting services to enhance the physical appeal of neighborhoods. Residents will receive access to these services through an application process. As the program grows, it will support the commissioning of imaginative and original beautification projects. Small grants will be awarded to resident grassroots groups with creative and imaginative remediation strategies for vacant lots.
