Keep Prince William Beautiful will use their $1,000 30 in Thirty grant award to participate in the National Planting Day Beautification Event, which focuses on bringing the community together to help restore the balance to the environment by planting sustainable, native plants. The goal of this project is to help community members recognize the value of native species to the local environment. This, in turn, will help make greener, more beautiful, and more sustainable communities in Prince William County.
Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $145,000 to 195 projects throughout the Commonwealth. This year, we partnered with Altria, Keep America Beautiful, and Deep Run Dance Marathon to make the program possible. Government, non-profit, civic, and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for 30 in Thirty grants for $500 to $2,000 describing how they plan to address Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, or Beautification in their communities.
