Trash Receptacle Mini-Grant

By simply increasing the number of receptacles in a public space, littering can be greatly reduced. The Keep Louisiana Beautiful Trash Receptacle Mini-Grant Program has been developed to assist Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB) affiliates in their efforts to provide attractive and high-quality trash receptacles in public spaces by streamlining the grant application process. Please note that this is an in-kind grant contribution as opposed to a cash reward grant and that recipients will not receive grant monies but instead, up to five trash receptacles.

Keep Louisiana Beautiful affiliates and pre-certified affiliates that are currently in Good Standing with KAB and KLB are eligible to apply. A complete application includes: a completed application, a signed Memorandum of Understanding, and the first of three required litter assessments. Please read the detailed eligibility requirements included within the application.

NOTE:  Non-profit organizations (501c3), schools, civic groups and government entities that are not Keep Louisiana Beautiful affiliates may submit a grant application for trash receptacles or recycling bins through the Healthy Communities Grant Application, found above.

Applications for the 2017 grant cycle will open on January 18, 2017 and are due on April 7, 2017. Applicants will be notified about the status of their application by June 1, 2017.
