Litter Abatement
Grant requests for litter cleanup will be accepted from counties in compliance with their five-year solid waste management plans and from incorporated cities which, by solid waste ordinance or other means, provide municipal solid waste collection service.

The Litter Abatement Grant program is supported by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Road Fund and Highway Construction Contingency Fund. Since 2003, state and local governments have cleaned more than three million miles of roadways with help from these grants.  Grant requests must be received by Lisa Evans at the Division of Waste Management no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2, 2020. The signed original agreement and any supporting documentation must be submitted in order for the request to be considered.

Grant request packets are being sent by email to county judge-executives, mayors and solid waste coordinators. For more information, contact Lisa Evans by email (go here for email information) or by phone (see below).
