New DEP Illegal Dumping Grant Program

The Department of Environmental Protection today announced it will invest $500,000 in a new Illegal Dump Cleanup Grant program for communities and nonprofit groups.
The program will focus on the cleanup of illegal dumps; site restoration and beautification; surveillance of existing dump sites and remediated sites; enforcement of littering and illegal dumping ordinances; and public awareness and education to inform local citizens about illegal dumping, littering and clean-up activities.
Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded with a match of at least 50 percent of the grant amount by the grantee. No deadline was announced for applications. (click here for more)
