Community Life Improvement Program

Revitalizing Philadelphia’s neighborhoods by removing blight.

Community Life Improvement Program

What we do

The Community Life Improvement Program (CLIP) helps Philadelphians make the City a nicer place to live. As part of this mission, we:

  • Remove graffiti vandalism from buildings, street signs, and other street fixtures.
  • Enforce the City’s regulations to make sure vacant lots and areas are kept clean.
  • Lend supplies and offer trash pickup for CLIP-coordinated neighborhood cleanups.
  • Provide adult non-violent offenders the opportunity to complete their community service sentences by cleaning and beautifying the city.

We partner with residents, community groups, businesses, other city departments, and agencies to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. To report a property that is not being maintained or to request graffiti removal, residents can contact CLIP through Philly311.
