AAH - Frequently Asked Questions
The incentive stipend is per eligible litter cleanup event held at adopted sites. Following a litter cleanup event, the volunteer is required to submit by email to the local District Adopt-A-Highway Coordinator their group name, adopted site name, date of litter cleanup event, number of bags collected, number of workers, hours worked and picture of collected bags.
Additionally, volunteers are encouraged to share before and after photos of the site. Photos are used to help Caltrans verify the occurrence of a cleanup event and promote the Adopt-A-Highway Program and Clean California on the Department’s website and social media pages.
Are fraternities, sororities or clubs affiliated with State Universities eligible to receive the incentive stipend since the primary contact for these entities is often a faculty member who is a state employee?
Are Non-Profit Organizations eligible to receive the incentive stipend if the primary contact is a state employee?
Stipends will be distributed by the State Controllers Office on a quarterly basis. Depending on the State Controller’s Office, checks should be distributed within 30-45 days after invoices are submitted.
NOTE: Checks will be issued by the State of California and will not reference Caltrans, Clean California, or Adopt-A-Highway
What information is shared with Adopt-A-Highway volunteers regarding trash at or near a homeless encampment?
The Adopt-A-Highway website has additional handouts with information about the program. The website also has a list of Local Adopt-A-Highway Coordinators who can be contacted for additional information.
