“Keep Maryland Beautiful” Grant Program Taking Applications

The Maryland Environmental Trust in partnership with the Maryland Department of Transportation and Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development presents five “Keep Maryland Beautiful” grants. Grants through the “Keep Maryland Beautiful” program help volunteer-based, nonprofit groups, communities and land trusts in Maryland to support environmental education projects, litter removal, citizen stewardship and to protect natural resources in urban and rural areas. Applications for the 2018 fall grant cycle will be accepted online through November 15. More than $200,000 will be awarded through the program in the spring of 2019. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis and contingent upon receipt of state funds.

Environmental Education, Community Initiatives and Cleanup Grants are available to nonprofits, schools and municipalities.

Land Trust Capacity, Excellence and Stewardship Grants are available to Maryland local land trusts.
