The opportunity to win up to $3,000 dollars for your community's KTB programs is here again, thanks to H-E-B and Central Market's Green Bag Grants! We are excited to announce that the application for the 2017 Green Bag Grants is now open and accepting enthusiastic applicants! 

In previous years H-E-B/Central Market have provided $25,000 in funding for new and existing programs for eligible KTB affiliates across Texas. If awarded a Green Bag Grant the money can be used towards: 

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


Eligible applicants are KTB affiliates in H-E-B/Central Market service areas with Gold Star, Silver Star or Good Standing affiliate status. While not a requirement, affiliates are strongly encouraged to partner with local schools, youth groups, H-E-B stores, recreational venues, government agencies and/or community organizations. Multiple projects in a community may be funded, but a separate application must be received for each distinct project.
