|Attention Indiana communities and organizations! The deadline to apply for grant funding from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s (IDEM) Community Recycling Grant Program is Oct. 15, 2021.
Grant funding is available for recycling and household hazardous waste (HHW) collection and disposal. Counties, municipalities, solid waste management districts, schools, and nonprofit organizations in Indiana are eligible to submit a Community Recycling Grant application requesting $1,000 to $100,000 in funding.
The Community Recycling Grant Program is funded through IDEM’s Solid Waste Management Fund. Eligible projects should focus on education and promotion of recycling, processing of recyclable materials, waste reduction, or HHW and organics management (including yard waste management and composting). Grant funding is intended to create successful, cost-effective, and sustainable programs. Applicants must demonstrate a direct or indirect increase in waste diversion as a result of the project.
