Funding available for regional studies to optimize waste diversion

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH THE RECYCLING RESOURCES ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM

REGIONAL STUDIES TO OPTIMIZE WASTE DIVERSION

The intent of this solicitation is to incentivize regional planning initiatives that focus on examining how existing waste diversion activities can be better coordinated in a defined region so as to maximize waste diversion in the future. Key project activities will include conducting one or more waste audits to establish a baseline, identifying key stakeholders and convening stakeholder meetings, and identifying existing and future infrastructure needs and potential policy changes. The findings from each of these activities will be presented in a final report. A total of $250,000 is available to fund at least five regional studies with project budgets capped at $50,000 each.

Information regarding this funding opportunity, the schedule, and the grant application can all be found on the CDPHE website.
