Keep America Beautiful is pleased to announce the second annual “National Day of Action” (NDA) supporting the Great American Cleanup.

Measuring Community Impact
In 2013, Keep America Beautiful will begin to measure in a new way the impact of our actions as we bring people together to build and sustain vibrant communities. While we are experts at cleanup, greening and recycling activities among many more, we need to begin to better understand the indirect impact of our actions within those communities. For example, we know that a property near a revitalized vacant lot increases in value by 17%*. There are many other examples as well. Our team will work with you to define the specific impact indicators for your project. We look forward to working with you.
Please send proposal information to Jason Smith @ firstname.lastname@example.org, by November 30, 2012. Submissions should be a maximum of one-page, two-sided, including project descriptions, plans and photos.
