Clean Communities Grant Award
06-05-15 BERKELEY - Mayor Carmen F. Amato, Jr., is pleased to announce the Township has received a Clean Communities Grant from the State totaling $130,593.
"I would like to once again thank the State for their commitment in funding this vital grant program," Mayor Amato said.
"The $130,593 Department of Environmental Protection Clean Communities Grant award is good news for Berkeley taxpayers and local non-profit, civic and community groups. The Township will use a portion of this grant to offset salaries of employees that clean and maintain our parks and beaches along with the funding of mini-grants to local non-profit civic and community groups that take advantage of our "Adopt a Spot" or "Adopt a Road" program.” Mayor Amato said.
“Any non-profit civic or community group in the township that signs up to participate in our "Adopt a Spot" or "Adopt a Road" project can receive $500 for their organization.” Mayor Amato said.
“These clean-ups provide a valuable service in keeping our township clean. The funding also provides for equipment related to the clean-ups, education and enforcement of litter laws. We plan on using some of these groups to help tidy up our streets and areas along the waterfront where Super Storm Sandy debris still remains." Mayor Amato said.
Any nonprofit organizations in Berkeley that want to participate in the program, should call Township Clean Communities Coordinator, Mark Vanella at 732-341-1022.
"It's a Win-Win situation for our Township. Nonprofit community groups take advantage of the funding and the township benefits that we are able to get areas of our town cleaned up." Mayor Amato concluded.
