Montgomery County Solid Waste District Announces 2013 Beautification Grants

The Montgomery County Solid Waste District is “growing” the 2013 Beautification Grant program, offered as part of Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) to promote volunteerism and community beautification within Montgomery County. This year, successful grant applicants are eligible to receive up to $500 for their project, compared to $250 offered in previous years.

Grant awards are restricted to the purchase of plants, planting materials, shrubs, trees, perennials, and annuals. In addition to plant purchases, requests for potting soil or compost will also be considered.

Applications that propose to use native plants, perennials, and drought-tolerant plants will receive higher ratings. The rating criteria also include maintenance and sustainability, amount of community involvement, and other factors. Youth involvement is highly encouraged.

For more information or to obtain an application, please contact Brian Fowls at (937) 224-8831 or visit www.kmcbohio.org. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2013.

The Montgomery County Solid Waste District established the KMCB Beautification Grant in 2010. The district provides waste disposal services for Montgomery County and surrounding counties. The district also offers outreach programs about recycling, waste reduction, and litter prevention to Montgomery County schools, communities, and businesses.
