A transformative initiative to remove litter, create jobs and beautify California
Through Clean California, Caltrans is making a serious investment in litter collection, community engagement and education to ultimately transform unsightly roadsides into spaces of pride for all Californians. It takes direct aim at the continuous trash generation that has overwhelmed the significant investment of time and resources by Caltrans and its partners collecting, recycling, and disposing of litter and hazardous waste.

Local Grant Program

As part of Clean California, Caltrans is developing the Clean California Local Grant Program. The two-year local grant program includes approximately $296 million for local communities to beautify and improve local streets and roads, tribal lands, parks, pathways, and transit centers to clean and enhance public spaces.

Stakeholder Guidelines Workshop

Stakeholders are invited to participate in two workshops designed to support the development of the guidelines for the Clean California Local Grants Program.

Guidelines Workshops

To develop the grant program guidelines, Caltrans will solicit input from local communities through two stakeholder workshops. The second workshop will build off the feedback and comments received during the first workshop.
