We are excited to once again partner with H-E-B/Central Market to present the Green Bag Grants, which provide $25,000 in funding for new and existing programs for eligible KTB affiliates across the state.

For 2017-2018, these projects can fall within the following categories and can be used in both formal and informal educational settings: 

  • Beautification/Community Greening
  • Litter Prevention
  • Recycling
  • Sustainability
  • Waste Reduction
  • Water Conservation
  • Plastic bag recycling/reduction

Grant Amount

The minimum grant award is $150, and the maximum award is $3,000.
