EIPA works on Litter
The Town of Edisto Beach has offered a $7500
matching grant to help pay for litter pickup on the National Scenic Byway. EIPA has appealed to its members, the island business community, and friends for funds to help match that grant. The Edisto Island Chamber of Commerce will administer the program, contracting for the pick up.

Adequate funds to match their grant this year are on hand
and we are building a separate account specifically for the purpose of assisting with next year.
