Colorado Waste Diversion Grant: Building Opportunities to Maximize Waste Diversion and Create Jobs in Colorado

Deadline: March 1, 2022

The purpose of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to fund projects, sustainable beyond the grant period that will enhance the financial viability of recycling, composting, reuse, repurposing, and waste reduction in Colorado and will create new jobs in the state. Preventing waste before it is created is the most effective reduction method, followed by reuse, and recycling. 

In addition to waste diversion projects, this RFA encourages applications with a focus on reduction, or stopping the creation of waste in the first place. Other eligible projects may focus on reuse, recycling, composting, repurposing or anaerobic digestion for a wide variety of materials. This is the 14th funding cycle for this RFA.

A total of $2 million is available to fund multiple projects. Funding is made possible through the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund (C.R.S. §25-16.5-106.5 Chapter 270 Article 19. 7).

Three rounds of written questions will be accepted and answers will be published online. The Q&A schedule is listed below:

Round One: Deadline to submit inquiries – January 14, 2022, 3:00pm
