REBC Grant Program

(formerly GATEway Grant Program)

REBC is an acronym for the Roadside Enhancement and Beautification Council. The mission of the REBC Grant Program is to provide funding for roadside enhancement and beautification projects along Georgia’s roadsides. The funding for grants comes from contributory value fees paid by outdoor advertising companies to the Department for vegetation removal at outdoor advertising signs. The funds may be used only for landscape plant material and its installation for the furtherance of roadside enhancement and beautification projects along state routes in Georgia.
