Maine DEP offers recycling and organics management grant opportunities

AUGUSTA, June 20, 2018

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection is soliciting grant proposals to support organics management and recycling initiatives. Two different types of proposals are being sought: 1) pilot projects in organics collection and management, and 2) investments in infrastructure and programs to support on-going recycling and organics management initiatives. Municipalities, schools, hospitals and restaurants are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $4,000 to fund pilot programs to collect, store and transport food scraps for composting or anaerobic digestion. These programs must include a data collection and reporting component. No cost sharing is required of applicants for these grants.

Both public and private sector entities may apply for grants up to $30,000 for recycling and organics management projects. Preference will be given to projects that serve a regional need.

Application details are available on-line at Request for Proposals, Maine DEP ( Questions on the RFP must be submitted by Tuesday, July 31, 2018 and proposals must be submitted electronically by 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 15, 2018.
