The PRIDE Community Grant program is designed to support local efforts to clean our land and water resources. The program encourages community and citizen involvement in projects in order to promote personal responsibility for the environment.
The one-year grants are worth up to $50,000. Eligible applicants are counties, cities, other public entities and nonprofit organizations. Recipients must match the grant with a contribution equal to least 10% of the grant amount.
The grants can be used for a variety of environmental improvement projects, such as disposing of trash collected during community cleanup events, removing illegal dumps, appliance buy-back programs, recycling programs, wetland construction, certain equipment purchases and other environmental restoration projects.
