Hamilton Township Awarded Fourth Largest "Clean Communities" Grant in State

(TRENTON) – Senator Linda Greenstein, Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo and Dan Benson (All-D Middlesex/Mercer), and Mayor Jeff Martin announced that Hamilton Township has been awarded a $178,089 grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection "Clean Communities" grant program.

The grant, which was the fourth largest award in the state, will be used to remove litter to beautify Hamilton's neighborhoods, improve water quality, and enhance quality of life for residents. 

"Keeping our communities clean is essential to the health and vitality of our residents, their families, and businesses." Senator Greenstein. "Thank you to the Clean Communities Council, DEP, and Mayor Jeff Martin for their hard work in securing this significant grant for Hamilton."

"I'm thrilled to have this money from the Clean Communities program awarded to Hamilton," said Assemblyman DeAngelo. "This grant will go directly to local programs that will protect our water quality as well as ensuring our neighborhoods and roads stay clean and litter-free." 

"As a lifelong resident, I know how important it is for Hamilton to remain a clean, green and welcoming community," said Assemblyman Benson. "The vital funding provided by the "Clean Communities" grant program will allow for litter removal, improvements in water quality for residents, as well as protection for wildlife and their habitats, without putting any additional tax burden on residents. In short, this grant will go a long way toward ensuring that Hamilton Township remains a community that residents like myself can continue to be proud to call home." 

"We are very pleased to receive this grant funding to support our efforts to make Hamilton Township clean and beautiful," said Mayor Martin. "These state grant funds are an important resource as we look to continue many ongoing programs aimed at protecting our local environment, including the annual Bromley neighborhood cleanup, annual stream cleanups, and ongoing street sweeping efforts across Hamilton's 625 miles of local roads. This grant will ensure that these critical programs will continue without the need to devote local tax dollars." 

Through the grant program, the NJDEP issued nearly $20 million to municipalities and counties across the state. Grants are funded by a legislated user-fee on manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors that produce litter-generating products.
