Neighborhood Rebates and Grants
In James City County (JCC), citizens are the key to healthy waterways and a healthyenvironment. Small actions, done consistently, help everyone maintain JCC’s high quality of life. Simply picking up after pets, disposing of oils and grease safely, and planting more plants makes a difference in how our neighborhoods look and how we experience our environment.
To help citizens participate and contribute on a larger scale, either individually or as a group of neighbors, JCC offers a variety of rebates, mini-grants, and give-aways that promote activities to improve our community. Funding is limited so apply early.
