Texas Department of TransportationKeep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation first began working together in the late 1960s, sharing the common goals of making Texas roadways attractive and safe for motorists and encouraging tourism, goals which have remained more than 40 years.
Since 1985, Keep Texas Beautiful has partnered through an annual contract with the Texas Department of Transportation to support TxDOT's anti-litter and beautification programs such as Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off and the Governor's Community Achievement Awards (GCAA). KTB has recognized outstanding communities for 24 years via the GCAA program, with TxDOT providing the landscape awards since 1985.
