Members of the Maryland Housing and Community Development Neighborhood Revitalization team joined Deputy Secretary Tony Reed and Keep America Beautiful's Senior Vice President/Recycling Brenda Pulley in Baltimore's Waverly neighborhood on March 20 for the launch of Keep Maryland Beautiful, coinciding with the launch of Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup.

Keep Maryland Beautiful, a new state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, is a multi-agency partnership aiming to reduce litter and change Maryland for the better from the ground up. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan also declared March 20 as "Keep Maryland Beautiful Day."

As a Keep America Beautiful state affiliate, Maryland will focus on neighborhood beautification statewide through increasing urban greening, citizen stewardship, community education, and litter removal activities. The program will also promote local workforce development through volunteer recruitment and jobs skills training.
