Applications for Earth Day Clean Up Grants are Due February 16!

NBC has announced the 2024 round of grants for Earth Day Community Clean-Ups.

In 2003, NBC Chairman Vincent Mesolella established the Chairman's River Restoration Initiative for the Woonasquatucket River. In 2013, the Chairman's River Restoration Initiative expanded to include support to other community organizations who would like to pursue their own Earth Day River and Lake Cleanups, restoration, or beautification projects. Annually, the NBC offers grants ranging from $250 up to $1000 to community groups in the NBC service area. From 2013-2023, grantees galvanized over 10,000 volunteers to make a difference for clean water in their communities.

The goal of the NBC 2024 Earth Day River Cleanup Grant Program is to continue the previous years' successes and emphasize the importance of Earth Day 2024, the value of the environment, and provide assistance to organizations improving the quality of life in their communities. The grant application is available here. The deadline is February 16, 2024.
