In operation since 1990, Project Sweep is one of New York City’s oldest supported-employment programs. Project Sweep workers clean commercial streets and clean offices for local businesses, merchant associations, and business improvement districts. Current sites include the Pitkin Avenue BID, Newkirk Plaza, Cortelyou Road Merchants Association, East Brooklyn Industrial BID, and parts of Borough Park. Some Project Sweep workers do messenger work or are trained as clerical/administrative workers. Workers are supervised by Job Coaches, who meet regularly in one-on-one meetings with workers, some of whom are developmentally disabled.
