2019 Grants for Waste Reduction
Please note: The deadline has passed for 2019 grant concept proposals. Applicants selected to proceed to the second round will be notified by April 1.
Available to non-profit and for-profit organizations, this grant program funds innovative projects that incorporate reuse, repair, deconstruction, product or process redesign, reduction, recovery, and redistribution of food, goods, and other materials. The goal is to minimize the need for disposal or recycling, and instead foster waste reduction to support environmental sustainability and conservation of natural resources, and stimulate economic activity in the reuse and recovery sectors.
