2021 KAB Unify & Beautify Community Grant Program 
Keep America Beautiful is launching this comprehensive grant application to support the KAB Affiliate Network, other nonprofit organizations, and community groups to implement programs or projects designed to build clean, green, and beautiful places for all to thrive and enjoy.  KAB is committed to fostering community diversity, unity, and environmental sustainability.  Funding is available independently or collectively to: promote recycling by funding public space recycling collection infrastructure, building strong neighborhoods within and along Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards, beautification through tree planting, and prevent litter by addressing cigarette litter and litter in the nation's waters. 
 
Applicants are encouraged, but not required, to develop a comprehensive PROGRAM approach, rather than project specific activities by leveraging the funding available through the various grant applications contained herein.  After completing basic information, common to all the applications, grant applicants will be given the option to apply for one or several of the community improvement grant offerings. 
 
As you plan your program activities please keep in mind that Keep America Beautiful requires every
2021 grant recipient to complete a status and/or final report, on or before by December 31,
2021. Grantees will receive 70% of their grant funding upon executing a grant agreement and the
remaining 30% of their award after submitting their Wrap-Up Report and having it reviewed and
accepted by Keep America Beautiful. Funding awards and grant agreements are expected to be
announced and executed no later than May 1, 2021. All 2021 Grantees will be required to post at least
one photo or story on KAB's Do Beautiful Things Website: https://kab.org/dobeautifulthings
