Graffiti Abatement Program

Graffiti not only is unattractive, it lowers property values and encourages other crimes. That’s why letting graffiti stand on your property is illegal in the City of Fort Worth.

The city’s Graffiti Abatement Program helps residential and commercial property owners comply with the law by offering no-cost graffiti removal services. To use this service, mail, fax or email a Permission to Remove Graffiti to the GAP office.
