Grants to Boost Regional Projects of askHRgreen.org

askHRgreen.org LogoEarlier this summer, the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund and Keep Virginia Beautiful awarded our askHRgreen.org committees a total of $13,100 in separate grants, both of which will go a long way toward supporting the work we are honored to do – encouraging environmental stewardship throughout Hampton Roads. 

The Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund grant of $11,100 will allow us to expand the  region-wide Bay Star Homes program for residents; bolster our Environmental Education Mini-Grant Program for educators; develop a new Green Learning Guide for elementary-aged students; provide pet waste stations to distribute through our Pet Waste Station Grant Program; and kick start a series of free, educational workshops for residents.

The Keep Virginia Beautiful award of $2,000 will fund a second region-wide Cigarette Litter Prevention Awareness Campaign, to help reverse the attitudes and behaviors about cigarette litter. This will be a follow up to one we implemented in 2015 that successfully reduced cigarette litter by 74 percent when measuring before-and-after litter at seven project sites.

We are grateful for the opportunities these awards will provide to promote a cleaner, greener quality of life in our Hampton Roads communities.
