Front Range Waste Diversion Grant Program

First Grant Solicitation: Summer 2020

The first request for grant applications will be published early this summer, open to municipalities and institutions as well as private sector and non-profit partners.

In May 2019, Governor Polis signed SB19-192 into law. The bill created the Front Range Waste Diversion Grant Program for Colorado’s Front Range communities funded by an increase in the landfill user fee. The grant program will be overseen by a 13-member board of directors as well as department administrative staff.

Update May 2020

The Front Range Waste Diversion (FRWD) Enterprise Board of Directors was appointed and held their first meeting in November 2019 and developed a three-year strategic plan for the program that identifies goals in three focus areas: 1) data collection and analysis; 2) municipal solid waste (including organics and recycling); 3) Non-municipal solid waste (focusing on C&D debris).

Data Survey Project - The FRWD board of directors is currently seeking proposals from qualified firms for a data survey project. Interested parties are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as this request may close early if sufficient proposals are received.

Annual collection from FRWD fees is expected to be $3-4M, depending on the economy and Covid-19 related impacts to MSW and C&D volumes.

Check out the FRWD website, where you’ll find the strategic plan, a program announcement flier you can share with grant seekers, and available grant or contractual opportunities: colorado.gov/cdphe/front-range-waste-diversion-grant-program.
