Nonprofit groups in Berkeley can apply for mini-grants

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.

"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."
