Keep America Beautiful Grants

Keep America Beautiful Grants: Apply Online

Keep America Beautiful's Grants Program provides opportunities for KAB certified affiliates in good standing to apply for and receive a variety of grants. In 2012, over $1 million dollars is available for community improvement, beautification, greening, waste reduction and recycling through KAB grants. There are no more restrictions on the number of grants you can receive so be sure to apply for a grant today!
"While these grants may not fund an entire program, they do allow us to do really significant projects that essentially give us something to take to local corporate groups and other potential funders. We can say, 'Look what we can do with $5,000.' It’s nice to have those 'spotlight' projects to use as a leveraging tool. People see that, and they want to know how they can get involved."
