The state Department of Environmental Protection has given the township a $107,386 Clean Communities Grant, Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said.
"The township will use a portion of this grant to offset salaries of employees and to fund mini-grants to local non-profit civic and community groups that take advantage of our "Adopt-a Spot" or "Adopt-a-Road"Clean Communities Program," Amato said.
Berkeley non-profit civic and community groups who apply for a grant can receive $500 for their organization, he said.
Any non-profit civic and community groups in Berkeley Township that are interested in participating in this program can contact Berkeley's Clean Communities Coordinator, Mark Vanella at: 732-341-1022.
"This grant award is good news for Berkeley taxpayers and local non-profit civic and community groups," Amato said. "The unding also provides for equipment related to the clean-ups, education and enforcement of litter laws."
