Sacramento community members looking to beautify their neighborhoods can get a helping hand from the city, thanks to a grant program.
The Neighborhood Clean-Up Grant offers up to $800 for the removal of debris and garbage in neighborhoods across the city. Applicants must belong to an organized group with supporting documentation, such as a community group, homeowner association, nonprofit, or church group. Eligible groups can apply to have the cost reimbursed for up to three clean-up events per year — for a total of $2,400.
The grant covers expenses such as:
Cost of trash removal supplies
Gas to transport trash to a dump
Cost of disposal
Promotion of volunteer events
According to city officials, the program has distributed $3,017 for clean-up events that have removed 11.5 tons of garbage and debris since launching last fall.

When was the last time I thought about the Roman Empire? Friday, when I looked up the origin of the word “paladin.” Paladins were the most trusted knights of Charlemagne, who was named Roman emperor by Pope Leo III in 800 A.D. Why did I look up the word paladin? I’m playing as a paladin in “Baldur’s Gate III.”
