Cigarette Litter Prevention Program Grants

You can start making a change in your community to reduce the amount of cigarette litter by implementing a local Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP) and educating adult smokers on the proper disposal of their cigarette butts. 

Each year, Keep America Beautiful awards CLPP grants to its affiliates, local governments, business improvement districts, downtown associations, parks and recreation areas, and other organizations dedicated to eradicating litter and beautifying their communities. The 2017 grant application process is now closed and recipients are below. The 2018 grant application will open January 3, 2018.
