Get Rid of Graffiti by Calling GRAB
GRaffiti ABatement Partners, Inc, or GRAB, is a non-profit, private-public partnership that helps eliminate graffiti vandalism in Montgomery County through eradication, education and enforcement strategies. Comprised of community, business and government, GRAB was established in 1996 and is the vision of former Montgomery County councilmembers Betty Ann Krahnke and Marilyn Praisner.
According to GRAB, graffiti vandalism is a complex behavioral problem that cannot be addressed by “quick fix” legislative initiatives alone. GRAB’s approach is to remove graffiti immediately and develop long-term strategies to engage youth susceptible to at-risk behaviors.
If you see graffiti, notify GRAB for assistance and advice.
