What we do…

Groundwork USA represents a growing national network of non-profits working alongside the local community to transform vacant and blighted land and waterways into community and environmental assets. Groundwork Trusts across the country accomplish this through a holistic approach to neighborhood revitalization that includes education, employment, youth leadership, and environmental stewardship training. Groundwork Trusts work on the ground in distressed neighborhoods to achieve local community goals in collaboration with the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) Program and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields and Urban Waters Program.
