Norview Acquisition, LLC in Deltaville has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Grant of $500 in the Cigarette Litter Prevention category. Norview Acquisition is a marina that’s been fighting to eliminate cigarette waste from their property and waters for years. Their goal is to substantially reduce the incidence of cigarette waste with their efforts. They plan to increase the number of installed cigarette receptacles, and distribute portable ashtrays to employees and guests. Informational signage will help to educate the public and heighten awareness of the problem. The Cigarette Litter Prevention Grant from Keep Virginia Beautiful will help aquatic plant and animal life, and enhance visitors’ experience.
Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $110,000 in 30 in Thirty Grants to 140 organizations throughout the state. This year, for the first time, we are awarding 45 grants because of the generosity of our partners at Altria, Keep America Beautiful, WestRock Foundation and Trex. Government, non-profit, civic and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for grants for $500 to $1,000 telling how they are addressing these pressing issues: Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, and Community Beautification
