The Streambank Cleanup And Lakeshore Enhancement (SCALE) program provides funds to assist groups that have established a recurring stream or lakeshore cleanup. Each group can receive up to $3,500 for implementation of their streambank or lakeshore cleanup events in a calendar year. Funding is provided by Illinois EPA through Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.
The program funds are available only to organizations that have an established, recurring streambank or lakeshore cleanup. Applications will be selected for funding based on the event’s proximity to Illinois EPA’s priority waters the number of people participating in past events and the size of the event area.
