As part of the application, grantee shall submit to StopWaste certificates of insurance for the policies listed below. The certificates shall provide that the grantee give written notice to StopWaste at least 10 days prior to cancellation of or any material change in the policy.

The combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage shall be not less than $1 million, though $2 million is preferred. $2million is required for equipment grants and grants that expose StopWaste to liability.

    If applicant does not currently maintain insurance that meets the Agency’s requirements, a submittal of a current insurance quote that meets these requirements will suffice for application purposes only. Any applicant selected for grant funding must procure insurance that meets the above requirements.
