LACCC Clean Streets partnership crews cleaned streets in Pacoima
The Los Angeles Community CARE Corp (LACCC) program, which ran in December 2020, offered temporary employment to Angelenos who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.

Participants were offered jobs related to COVID-19 emergency response and humanitarian efforts that paid up to $22 per hour for up to 200 hours. EWDD’s WorkSource Centers, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Council District Offices and Community Build, Inc., rolled out the LACCC in 30-days in order to expend the CARES Act funding for the program before it expired December 30, 2020.

As part of the program, the LACCC Clean Streets partnership with the City's Office of Beautification and the LA Conservation Corps funded opportunities for participants to join work crews that cleaned streets and medians throughout the City.

Crews provided landscaping services, trimmed overgrown trees and grass medians. Crews also cleared numerous alleys and street corners strewn with discarded furniture, trash and other items.
