Environmental improvement grants


Being environmentally responsible takes commitment, creativity and, at times, money.

Our community environmental improvement grant (CEIG) program helps to offset the costs many local groups incur in the name of building a cleaner, more environmentally sustainable city.

The goals of our program include:

  • Increasing awareness among residents of how they view and treat our local air, water and land resources, and encouraging them to help improve the quality of those resources;
  • Encouraging environmental stewardship;
  • Promoting and initiating community-based environmental projects; and
  • Supporting environmental research.
