Congratulations to our 2017 GAC Grant recipients! This year, 36 organizations in Oklahoma were selected as recipients of the OGE Cash Grants. 11 groups were selected to receive a P&K Equipment Grant.
Thanks to the generosity of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, we are able to present several of our affiliate with funding to selected affiliate through our Roadside Beautification and Environmental Beautification grants.
From March 1 to May 31, an estimated 60,000 Oklahomans will join millions nationwide to participate in the 2017 Great American Cleanup (GAC).
Individuals and groups wishing to participate in the GAC in Oklahoma must register through KOB. Registered groups are able to receive free cleanup supplies, program materials and grant opportunities.
The ODOT Roadside Beautification grant and DEQ Environmental grant are opportunities for affiliates to gain additional funding to better their communities. $40,000 for both programs will be allocated to accepted applicants. Amounts will vary for applicants, determined by the needs of their intended projects. 90% of the funds will be given in January, and the last 10% will be given after the project is completed and wrap-up report is submitted.
