Keep Virginia Beautiful has awarded Augusta County Recycling Committee in partnership with Augusta County Parks and Recreation a $500 grant for their Cigarette Litter Prevention Project titled, “Park Your Butts Here.”
Keep Virginia Beautiful is announcing the winners for its annual “30 Grants in Thirty Days.”
Government, non-profit, civic, and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for grants for $500 to $2,000 describing how they plan to address Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, or Beautification in their communities.
Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $145,000 to 195 projects throughout the Commonwealth. This year, KVB partnered with Altria, Keep America Beautiful, and Deep Run Dance Marathon to make the program possible.
The mission at Keep Virginia Beautiful is to engage and unite Virginians to improve our natural and scenic environment through five impact areas: Litter Prevention, Waste Reduction, Recycling, Beautification, and Environmental Education.
