EPA: Apply for New Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Funding for Recycling & Composting

$100M in funding is now available to help build and transform solid waste infrastructure, manage materials to achieve a circular economy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create cleaner, resilient, and healthier communities. EPA is releasing new funding opportunities under the Solid Waste Infrastructure for Recycling grant program and the Recycling Education and Outreach Grant program, both of which were funded by the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

There are 10 regions in which you can apply for the grant within. Colorado is Region 8 with Virginia Till ([email protected]) and Patrick Wauters ([email protected]) being our EPA regional representatives. 

Recycling Education and Outreach Grants ($30,000,000): For states, tribes, territories, local governments, and other organizations to fund projects to improve consumer education and outreach on waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and composting by providing them with the practical tools needed to reduce waste generation, decrease contamination in the recycling stream, and increase recycling rates across the country in a manner that is equitable for all. Applications for funding are due February 15th, 2023. 

Register here for upcoming information webinars for these grants, and see the grant pages here (SWIFR Political Subdivisions EPA Page) and here (Recycling Education Outreach EPA Page) for recorded webinars and slides. Materials could include food waste, organics and construction and demolition debris, as well as “common” recycling.

And don’t forget about this cool new online dashboard and toolkit that could help with lots of info and best practices regarding general sustainable materials management.
