About the Campaign:
These events are made possible by Governor Gavin Newsom’s Clean California initiative, a sweeping, $1.2 billion, multiyear clean-up effort led by Caltrans to remove trash, create thousands of jobs, and join with communities throughout the state to reclaim, transform, and beautify public spaces.
Since launching Clean California in July 2021, Caltrans has hired more than 840 team members as part of Clean California. Clean California grants have funded 231 projects to revitalize and beautify underserved communities, some of which are already complete and now sources of community pride. In February 2023, Governor Newsom announced a new round of $100 million in grants for local beautification projects.
