The Community Waste Reduction Grant (CWRG) program is a competitive program that is open to all governmental entities such as parks, cities, townships and villages, schools, other public sectors, and non-profit organizations. Proposed projects and programs should address the unique waste reduction, diversion, and recycling needs of central Ohio; emphasize partnership building and collaboration, and address opportunities to leverage the waste stream for community benefit. Please sign up to receive notifications and/or to share ideas.
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA)Recycling and Litter Prevention program supports communities, nonprofits, businesses, and academic institutions that initiate or expand recycling programs, encourage sustainable practices, stimulate economic growth, and support litter prevention efforts through four different grants.
Available grant opportunities are available for Community and Litter, Academic Institution, Market Development, and Scrap Tire activities.
Grants are awarded on an annual basis. Applications open the first Monday in November and close the first Friday in February the following year.
