We are VERY happy to announce that we we awarded a grant of $2,500 from The Maryland Environmental Trust, with funding from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development!!!! They have added a new Clean Up & Green Up Maryland Grant to the suite of awards available through its Keep Maryland
Beautiful program. This new grant was established to help community groups and nonprofit organizations statewide with neighborhood beautification activities that include litter removal, greening activities, community education, and citizen stewardship statewide.
The Clean Up & Green Up Maryland Grant is awarded to local groups and nonprofit organizations working to remove litter and engage residents and young people in neighborhood cleaning and greening initiatives.
The objectives of the grants are to: encourage a sense of stewardship and personal responsibility for the environment; stimulate a better understanding of environmental issues; help reduce or eliminate a local environmental problem; litter removal; watershed protection; and encourage education about growth management and protection of rural and urban areas and sensitive resources while discouraging sprawl development. HUGE props to KIBCU Communications Director @klimbmntns for her hard work to get us approved! #marylandenvironmentaltrust #keepmarylandbeautiful #kentislandmd #marylandseasternshore #kibcu #cleanuptogreenup ✌🏻💚🌎
