Grants for Anti-Litter Control

Applications for Litter Abatement Grants Sought by Division of Waste Management

Applications are due on November 1, 2019.

The Energy and Environment Cabinet’s (EEC) Division of Waste Management (DWM) is calling for grant applications for two of its signature programs, illegal dump cleanup and the cleanup of litter along public roads.

Since 2003, state and local governments have cleaned more than 2.8 million miles of roadways with help from these grants. 

Cities are eligible for the Litter Abatement Grants,
while counties are eligible for the illegal dump grants.  The Litter Abatement Grant program is supported by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Road Fund and Highway Construction Contingency Fund. Grant requests must be received by Lisa Evans at the Division of Waste Management no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019.  The signed original agreement and any supporting documentation must be submitted in order for the request to be complete.

The signed City Request and Agreement for Litter Abatement Grant Funding form must be completed and received by November 1.  The amount of funding for each city will be determined after that time. 

Grant request packets are being sent by email to county judge-executives, mayors and solid waste coordinators by the DWM.

All information and forms are also available on the EEC website.
