Regional and Municpal Studies to Optimize Waste Diversion
 

The intent of this solicitation is to incentivize municipal and regional planning initiatives that focus on examining how existing waste diversion activities can be better coordinated in a defined municipality or region so as to maximize waste diversion in the future. This includes 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. 
 
Approximately $250,000 is available to fund at least five regional studies. Project budgets cannot exceed a request of more than $50,000 in grant funds. If the majority of proposals request less than the maximum award amount of $50,000, it is possible that additional proposals may be funded.
