RE: DEP Announces Clean Community Grant Awards

Dear Mayor:

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced total awards of $18.3 million in Clean Communities grants to help municipalities and counties fund litter cleanup efforts.

The Clean Communities grants are funded by a fee imposed on manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of litter-generating products. Disbursements to municipalities are based on the number of housing units and miles of municipally owned roadways within each municipality. Disbursements to counties are based on the number of miles of roads each county owns.

Activities funded by the grants include cleanups of stormwater systems that can disperse trash into streams, rivers and bays; volunteer cleanups of public properties; adoption and enforcement of local anti-littering ordinances; beach cleanups; public information and education programs; and purchases of litter collection equipment, litter receptacles, recycling bins, anti-litter signs and supplies to remove graffiti.

For lists of municipal and county grant awards, visit: http://www.nj.gov/dep/docs/cc-muni2013.pdf  and  http://www.nj.gov/dep/docs/cc-county2013.pdf.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
