Buy Recycled Grant Program 2010/2011

Purpose

The Montgomery County Solid Waste District (MCSWD) established the Buy Recycled Grant Program for the purchase and promotion of recycled content material and to increase participation in MCSWD community and education programs.

Eligibility

The buy-recycled grant funds are available on a competitive basis to all Montgomery County schools and select nonprofits (exclusions may apply). Funding can be used to purchase and promote any type of recycled content material including but not limited to, paper, plastic, steel, aluminum, tires and glass.

Cities, townships and solid waste district members may apply for similar funding through the Incentive Grant Program in February 2011.  Applicants that do not receive funding for the Buy Recycled Grant are encouraged to apply for the 2011 Incentive Grant.  Applying for the Incentive Grant requires endorsement from the applicant’s jurisdiction and participation in a mandatory pre-submission meeting to be held in February 2011. 

Funding

The total funding dollars that may be available are $50,000. Funding for this project is contingent upon approval of the 2011 budget. The 2011 budgeting occurs in late fall of 2010.

Actual awards will vary based upon proposed projects and the total number of applications submitted.  Partial funding of proposals may be offered. Upon award announcement, funding dollars will be available beginning January of 2011.

Application

Proposals must be submitted by 4:00 PM on October 29th, 2010, which is the end of Recycle, Ohio! Month. Any incomplete applications will not be considered.
