In 2017, WNCLB partnered with the Delaware Center for Horticulture and The Nature Conservancy to develop and promote the Clean and Green Program utilizing WNCLB vacant lots. Successfully greened lots reduce crime and improve the overall public health of its residents. In April 2018, WNCLB received a $50,000 State of Delaware Neighborhood Building Block grant to fund our greening objectives. To-date, the team has 6 Clean and Green lots with an additional 10 parcels scheduled for Spring 2021.
