A year after Hurricane Harvey devastated Seabrook and surrounding communities, Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) has recognized the City of Seabrook as a recipient of the Rebuilding Texas Grants program. Through KTB’s partnership with Keep America Beautiful and sponsorships from Revolver Brewing, Waste Management and Chevron, KTB will provide nine affiliate communities with funds to continue to rebuild and restore their public spaces after the destruction caused by the storm. With contributions from Revolver Brewing, Waste Management and Chevron as well as generous individual donors, KTB created the Rebuilding Texas Grants program to support restoration projects and long-term recovery efforts in the affected communities, such as ours.
The fund will support the City of Seabrook’s efforts to replant and restore the palm trees along Main Street in Seabrook.
In addition to the City of Seabrook, Keep Aransas Pass Beautiful, Keep Weston Lakes Beautiful, Keep Aransas County Beautiful, Keep Friendswood Beautiful, Keep Cuero Beautiful, Keep Jasper Beautiful, Keep Sugar Land Beautiful and Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful were also awarded grants to help rebuild their communities.
“Beyond financial support for restoration projects, we’re aiming to help our affiliates by providing them with an outlet to engage community members and focus on rebuilding together,” says Suzanne Kho, Executive Director of KTB. “We are so thankful for our partnership with Keep America Beautiful and numerous sponsors and donors, as it allows us to have an even greater impact on our Texas communities.”
The City of Seabrook is thankful for this grant and the opportunity to continue to rebuild Seabrook. To learn more about KTB resources and current grant opportunities, visit www.ktb.org/grants.
