The Clean & Green Neighbourhood Grant applies to projects that focus on one of the five focus areas of the Clean and Green Strategy:

  • Litter
  • Illegal dumping
  • Graffiti
  • Beautification
  • Environmental stewardship

In the case of privately owned properties, consideration will be given where the property has some connection to the outside community. Projects and initiatives receiving other forms of funding from the City of Hamilton are not eligible.

The Keep Hamilton Clean & Green Committee looks forward to receiving your applications for funding this year and supporting the amazing work in our community to keep our neighbourhoods clean & green!

For more details and information please visit the website or email cleanandgreen@hamilton.ca

Good news story to highlight from last year:

The Mount Hamilton Horticultural Society applied for a Clean & Green Neighbourhood grant in 2017 to celebrate the group’s 90th anniversary. They used the $500 grant to purchase soil, mulch, and plants to beautify a small garden space at Norman Pinky Lewis Recreation Centre on Sanford Avenue North in Ward 3. The new garden has helped to beautify the area and create a more inviting entrance area to the recreation centre.
