FIFTH DISTRICT LEGISLATORS ANNOUNCE $330,000 IN CLEAN COMMUNITY GRANTS

(CAMDEN) – Senator Donald Norcross and Assemblymen Angel Fuentes and Gilbert “Whip” Wilson (D-Camden/Gloucester) have announced $329,651.80 in Clean Community Grants to help beautify the Fifth District. The funding is designated for litter cleanup and graffiti removal programs, clean communities education and the enforcement of anti-littering laws.

“Clean Community Grants fund important local programs that improve quality of life and remove public eyesores,” said Senator Norcross. “These grants demonstrate our state’s commitment to keeping New Jersey beautiful for our residents and future generations.”

“These programs are a great way to engage members of the community in the effort to keep their towns beautiful, and to educate young people about the environmental benefits that even the smallest efforts can have,” said Assemblyman Fuentes.

“Reducing litter and graffiti strengthens a residents’ pride in their community, but just as importantly has the positive economic benefits of attracting prospective businesses and visitors to the town,” added Assemblyman Wilson.
