Mr. Trash Wheel's Community Beautification Grant

What is the grant program?

Waterfront Partnership aims to distribute $25,000 in small grants ($1,000-$5,000) to projects located in targeted communities on Baltimore’s east side. The program awards funds for projects that will clean and beautify public spaces and reduce the amount of trash and other pollution ending up in the Harbor.
In addition to receiving funds, awardees commit to learning about their local environment and the Baltimore Harbor by participating in activities such as lectures, walking tours, and boat trips.

Some examples of potential projects include:

  • Community gardens
  • Community cleanups
  • Water and nature themed art
  • Recycling bin giveaway
  • Tree plantings
  • Outreach and education
