2013 GRANT SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN!
KVB is proud to bring back our very successful and highly anticipated “30 Grants in 30 Days” program. We would like to thank our generous sponsor for 2013; Lowe’s Home Improvement. Without them, these grants would not be possible!

These grants are categorized in 3 areas; (1) Litter Prevention, (2) Recycling, and (3) Beautification and Community Greening. Thirty grants of $500 will be awarded to 30 geographically different areas around the Commonwealth within the 3 categories, to be dispersed amongst small to large communities, schools to universities, city parks to state parks, civic clubs to environmental groups. These grants will be awarded in the 30 days of June. Please fill out the grant application below.
