Grants to Washington non-profits and groups of three or more Washington residents for contaminated site remediation and to encourage waste reduction or elimination. Funds will be provided for projects that involve the public in local decision making regarding contaminated site clean up and restoration, and projects that involve community efforts in mitigating industry and household waste.

Two categories of funding are available:

These projects encourage public involvement in cleaning up contaminated sites or planning for site restoration. If you are applying for this type of grant, you must show that a release of a hazardous substance has occurred or that such a release threatens an identified site. These projects fall under two categories.

1. Cleanup Oversight
This kind of project helps people in affected communities participate in decision making regarding hazardous waste investigation or site cleanup.

2. Community/Industry Partnerships
In this category, community, environmental, or minority groups could focus on concerns about releases or potential releases from local industries. The applicant must have a letter of understanding with any business that will help with the project.

* Waste Management Projects encourage public involvement to eliminate or reduce waste. Community/Industry Partnerships
In this category, community, environmental, or minority groups could focus on concerns about releases or potential releases from local industries. The applicant must have a letter of understanding with any business that will help with the project.
