The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is accepting proposals for grants up to $500,000 for recycling projects. Local government, businesses, solid waste management districts and nonprofit organizations located and doing business in the state are eligible to submit proposals now through June 21.
The proposals must show a need for the funds, how the project would increase recycling collection or consumption, a reduction in municipal solid waste shipped for final disposal or improved partnerships with communities through tangible outreach and education efforts.
For a complete guideline on proposal requirements and submittal, visit here.
Projects should demonstrate sustainability and an economic understanding of the state’s recycling market. Final funding determinations will be made this fall. To apply visit idem.IN.gov/recycle/2358.htm.
