School clubs, sports teams and other youth groups can earn $500 while helping to clean up their neighborhoods and other littered areas around Bernalillo County.
Non-profit youth groups are encouraged to apply for $500 grants as part of Bernalillo County’s participation in the New Mexico Clean and Beautiful program. The deadline to apply is Sept. 21.
Ten groups will be awarded a $500 grant. Applicants will be judged on several factors, including number of youth participating, the type of clean-up planned, and how the money will be used.
Awardees will have until Oct. 31 to complete their beautification projects. Supplies such as trash bags and T-shirts will be provided by the county.
