Graffiti Removal Pilot Program
The City of Artesia is now accepting applications for the Graffiti Removal Pilot Program!

The City of Artesia's Graffiti Removal Pilot Program assists homeowners by offering graffiti removal supplies to those who frequently deal with graffiti placed on their property. Artesia homeowners will be eligible to receive graffiti removal materials OR a standard paint color for painting over graffiti for free upon submitting a complete application, subject to approval by City staff.

To be eligible to receive graffiti removal materials, an Artesia homeowner must submit a complete application form. Homeowners are eligible to receive a new batch of supplies 12 months after they receive their first batch. By receiving supplies, the homeowner agrees to use the supplies to remove graffiti on their property within 72 hours, and to send the City photographic evidence that the graffiti was removed. Supplies will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and funds are limited, so residents are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
