Grants to Kentucky county governments for the cleanup and remediation of non-permitted open dump sites. Please note that applicants must obtain a site inspection prior to applying. Priority will be given to sites near sensitive protected areas, and those containing hazardous contents.

An “illegal open dump” means any facility or site for the disposal of solid waste that does not have a valid permit issued by the cabinet or does not meet the environmental performance standards established by the cabinet and is equal to or greater than two (2) consolidated cubic yards of solid waste.

The grant period is 14 months, from January 1, 2017 until February 28, 2018.

Kentucky county governments may apply.

Illegal open dumps must be pre-inspected by Division of Waste Management inspectors before you apply for an Illegal Open Dump Remediation Grant. Check with a DWM regional office inspector for a copy of the pre-inspection form.

Applications must be received by Lisa Evans at the Division of Waste Management no later than 4:30 PM on Tuesday, November 1, 2016.  The complete, signed original application and any supporting documentation must be submitted in order for the application to be complete.

A match of twenty-five (25%) percent of the grant amount, either in-kind or actual dollars, is required for individual dumps costing less than $50,000.
