KLB accepting ‘Healthy Communities Grants’

Published 11:10 am Tuesday, February 22, 2022

It’s that time of year, when Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB), the state’s leading community improvement organization, seeks programs and activities to fund with its Healthy Communities Grants. KLB has awarded over $3 million in grants to support local programs that reduce litter and waste, increase recycling, strengthen litter enforcement, and promote environmental education.

Interested parties should submit a “Letter of Intent” highlighting their proposed grant project. After reviewing the letters, KLB will extend invitations to formally apply to the programs that are closely aligned with the goals of the grant program. Letters of Intent will be accepted now until Friday, March 4. Letters may be submitted to KLB via direct mail or email. Grant award amounts vary from $2,500 to $8,000. Non-profit organizations, schools, universities, municipalities, and parishes are eligible to apply.
