Project Clean Slate



Project Clean Slate is an initiative of Detroit at Work and the Law Department to help residents get their criminal records expunged to gain access to better job, housing, and educational opportunities.  Project Clean Slate is free to all eligible Detroit residents.

When you attend one of our expungement clinics or request online screening, Project Clean Slate pairs you with an attorney who reviews your criminal record, determines if you are eligible for an expungement, and if you are, starts the application process.  See below for our current schedule:
