The grant is open to county governments, Sheriff’s Departments or regional organizations, depending on where the officer will be housed. Priority will be given to counties that do not currently have any enforcement officers dedicated to litter control. Prior grant recipients who are not in compliance with other PalmettoPride grant requirements will be deemed ineligible to receive funds.
The Litter Task Force Grant is a competitive grant that provides funding of up to $20,000 to pay for a part-time litter control officer, dedicated to enforcing state and local litter laws. This grant is a pilot program coordinated by PalmettoPride for the sole purpose of providing assistance to county governments to help enforce state and local litter laws. Grant recipients will have the option to receive funds for two years provided they fulfill the obligations of the grant.
The grant funds will be dispersed bi-annually dependent upon activities and success of the officer in enforcing state and local litter laws. Grant recipients can receive funds for two-years if requirements of the grant are met and a reduction of litter is measurable.
