Help-A-Lot works in partnership with Department of Public Services (DPS) to assist with the Mayor's Private Lot Abatement Program (PLAP), which remediates littered and overgrown vacant properties in the City of Cincinnati's database.

Negligent property owners are cited for tall grass/weeds. excessive litter, or both, and they have ten days to come into compliance for a reduced fine.  Properties that are not cleaned up in time are entered into the database for abatement, and additional fines may be issued to the owner.

Help-A-Lot gives local organizations the opportunity to raise funds for their organization by recruiting volunteers to abate properties designated by the city.  KCB provides the tools and equipment to clean and mow the properties, while DPS provides garbage and yard waste collection.
