The Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance is
planning a new round of grant-funded projects, with a focus on recovery of
organic residuals. Projects that will be eligible for grant funding are
those that reduce the flow of organic residuals to waste disposal facilities
and those that stimulate market demand for recycled organic residuals.
The amount of grant funding available is a maximum of $25,000 per project,
with a 10% matching requirement of the applicant. Special consideration will
be given to projects that address:
· commercial and residential food wastes - estimates of generation
quantities; recycling programs
· diversion of industrial organic wastes from landfills
· diversion of recycled organic wastes and products to agricultural markets
· market demand assessments for recycled organic wastes
· compost quality standards for different markets, and
· compost use assessments (crop yield, disease suppression, bioremediation,
Requests for Proposal (RFP) will be available on October 1. Proposals should
not exceed 10 written pages and must be postmarked no later than December 1.
Announcements of award winners will be made by January 1999. To receive a
