About Weed and Seed

Allentown's Weed and Seed strategy is to "weed" out drug trafficking, violent crimes and related offenses through coordinated law enforcement and community policing; and to "seed" the designated areas with prevention, intervention and treatment programs designed to meet the communities' needs for human services, employment and economic development, youth development and housing. Furthermore, Allentown's initiative works closely with residents by providing ongoing resident leadership training and by requiring resident involvement in all aspects of the initiative. Weed and Seed links federal, state, and local social services, private sector plus community efforts, to maximize the impact of existing community programs and resources. A component of the City's Community and Economic Development Department, the Weed and Seed initiative enhances Allentown's growth and development.
