Serving South Jersey

Washington and Monroe Townships Receive Over $100,000 Each in State Clean Communities Grants

Senator Paul Moriarty, Assemblyman Dan Hutchison, and Assemblyman Cody Miller advocated for the state Clean Communities grants on behalf of Washington and Monroe Townships. These annual grants, distributed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), support municipalities and counties in funding litter removal programs to clean up neighborhoods, prevent trash from entering waterways, and protect wildlife habitats.

Grant Awards:

  • Monroe Township: $101,003

  • Washington Township: $123,065

Clean Communities grants provide local governments with critical funds to help create a litter-free New Jersey, allowing them to organize volunteer cleanups, purchase cleanup equipment and trash and recycling receptacles for public spaces, promote litter education initiatives, and enhance stormwater management programs. These grants represent a significant step towards a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable New Jersey for all!
