New Jersey Clean Communities is a statewide, comprehensive, litter-abatement program created by the passage of the Clean Communities Act in 1986. The Act provides a funding source for the program and guidelines for the use of funds. Municipalities and counties receive Clean Communities grants in the form of state-aid each year. Funding is also allocated to the state parks service and the Clean Communities Council. Our mission is to reduce litter on public places, promote the volunteer cleanup of public lands and sustain a reduction in litter through education.
The Clean Communities Program provides mini-grants payable to community non-profit organizations who perform cleanups on Township streets and other public properties. Grants are available on a first come, first serve basis
