REBC Grant Program

(formerly GATEway Grant Program)

REBC is an acronym for the Roadside Enhancement and Beautification Council. The REBC Grant Program provides 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 Georgia DOT 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.

Call For Projects

Georgia DOT currently does not have a call for REBC Grant applications due to a lack of funds.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Who Can Participate

Any organization, local government, or state agency may apply for grants (maximum $50,000) for landscape enhancement of the state right-of-way that involves the local community, displays the right-of-way in an attractive fashion and promotes pride in Georgia.  Grant recipients are not required to provide matching funds.

NOTE: Local governments who are not in compliance with Georgia’s Service Delivery Act are not able to receive grants from state agencies, and therefore are not eligible to apply for an REBC Grant. View List of Local Governments Not In Compliance. ​​
