The Keller fund was established when the county voters selected the landfill site on Bailey Road, just south of Pittsburg and Bay Point. Based on tonnage sent to the Keller Canyon Landfill, the total amount available for distribution averages about $1.2 million per year.
The current grant program under Supervisor Glover focuses on programs that beautify the communities, enhances public safety and promotes programs and events for youth.
In the past, some of the programs funded by the Keller grants included the supervisor’s annual youth summit, an anti-gang symposium and school crossing guards in Bay Point.
