Here are the Thirty Green Grant Awards for 2020!

Congratulations to this year’s thirty Green Grants awards! As our program grows each year, we have so many more deserving projects applying for grants. We had a record number of applications this year, and the judges had a difficult time choosing! We are grateful to our judges for all the time they spent reading, evaluating, and scoring the grant applications. They are experts in their fields, and we appreciate their talent!

Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided $254,500 for 320 different projects throughout the state! We’ve awarded grants to urban areas, rural counties, historic parks, and municipalities — places as diverse as the Commonwealth herself.

The 30 in 30 Green Grants program demonstrates the power of volunteers and people who have the desire to make a difference in the communities where they live. And the impact of the projects and programs they carry out is multiplied by the number of people who see, and hopefully follow, their example. We are proud to be part of this impact, and we are grateful to our partner Altria, along with additional support from Coca-Cola and Keep America Beautiful.
