Ongoing Grant Programs
The Mini-Grant program is designed to provide small amounts of money, within a brief period of time, for a specific and limited purpose and open to all Alameda County based applicants – private firms, non-profit organizations, schools and individuals. The proposed project must be in the area of source reduction, reuse, recycling and market development. Funds may also be requested for educational programs that promote source reduction, reuse, recycling and buy recycled. $5,000 maximum request.
Use Reusables is offering up to $5,000 per approved business or institution for the purchase of reusable transport packaging. Applications will be evaluated on a first come first serve basis until grant funds are expended. $25,000 is available for the 2018/19 Fiscal Year.
Composting is now mandatory for many businesses and institutions in Alameda County. To make it easier for businesses to collect food scraps, food-soiled paper and plant debris, StopWaste is offering free indoor green bins, up to a $500 value per approved business. Choose from a variety of container and lid options in different sizes, provided by three pre-selected vendors. Funds are limited – apply online now at www.RecyclingRulesAC.org.
StopWaste is offering up to $500 in rebates toward the purchase of reusable food service ware for businesses and schools that participate in the ReThink Disposable program.
