The Welsh Government is allocating £22m in funding to environmental organisations such as Keep Wales Tidy and Fareshare.
Funding from the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate has been awarded to 16 organisations from 2015-2018.
Resources minister Carl Sargeant, left, said the money would benefit both local communities and the natural landscape.
“This funding is further evidence of the Welsh Government’s commitment to delivering a sustainable Wales and I look forward to working with these fantastic organisations to build on the good work already evident across Wales,” he said.
