Currently, Bluegrass PRIDE serves 18 counties across Kentucky. However, the grant money will be primarily used in Clark, Montgomery, Madison, Garrard, Lincoln, Estill and Powell counties.
The grant money will be used for various projects in these counties such as for rain barrels, water conservation, and litter cleanup.
