KLB Affiliate Grants

Keep Louisiana Beautiful’s affiliate grants program supports affiliate organizations across Louisiana that are actively engaged and committed to making a measurable impact in their local communities. Affiliates who meet specific criteria at application time can apply for a Program Grant, Cleaning Supplies Grant, Trash Receptacle Grant, and an Environmental Education Grant.

KLB Affiliate Program Grants: KLB‘s Program Grants are awarded to projects and initiatives with solid and measurable outcomes in one or more of the identified focus areas: litter and waste reduction, recycling, reusing, litter enforcement, and environmental education related to KLB‘s mission.

Cleanup Supplies: According to a Keep Louisiana Beautiful study conducted in 2009, municipal, parish, and state agencies spend more than $40 million on litter abatement in Louisiana each year. The indirect costs of litter are also considerable. Local cleanups of litter and debris removal from roadways and waterways bring the communities together to heighten awareness of the problem, recruit volunteers for your affiliate, and remove substantial amounts of litter for a cleaner and greener Louisiana.

Trash Receptacles: One of KLB‘s key initiatives is to support clean and green infrastructure. Installing receptacles is one way to do that. Data collected over the last two years shows a reduction of litter by 56% in areas where trash receptacles are installed and maintained. Public spaces are transformed into beautiful, clean places.

Environmental Education Grants: Programs that aim to increase positive changes, perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors related to environmental issues and inspire students to deepen their community connectedness through transferable skills that empower them to actively work toward resolving local ecological problems. Creating an engaged and concerned generation with a better understanding of their vital role in caring for their community and state results in long-term shifts and impacts.
