RREO Grants FY 2015

Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Fund Grants Program – FY2015


We are no longer accepting applications for State Fiscal Year 2015. A Request for Applications is typically released each year in January. Please check this website for future RREO Grant opportunities.


Purpose Timeline




The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (department), working through the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Assistance Committee to the Board, requests applications for implementation projects that promote economic development through the productive management of materials that would otherwise be treated as discards. Proposals may address source reduction, recycling, beneficial use/re-use, anaerobic digestion, or composting for a wide variety of materials. Projects will be funded through the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Act (1), which created the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) grant program to assist the state in achieving its potential to recycle materials, advance economic development, create jobs, and preserve the state's natural beauty. This will be the seventh year for the grant program.

(1) -- C.R.S. §25-16.5-106.5 (Chapter 270 Article 19.7)
