Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California local and state governments and other public entities for projects that protect the environment and promote the health and safety of citizens. Funding is intended to support agencies in their efforts to clean waste from properties throughout their jurisdiction. The purpose of the grant is to clean up solid waste sites and solid waste at co-disposal sites where the responsible party either cannot be identified or is unwilling or unable to pay for timely remediation and where cleanup is needed to protect public health and safety and/or the environment.

Widespread illegal dumping of solid waste adversely impacts Californians in many ways. Properties on which illegal dumping occurs lose economic value; create public health and safety and environmental problems; and degrade the enjoyment and pride in the affected communities. Abandoned, idled, or underutilized properties due to unauthorized dumping impact what were once the sources of economic benefits to a community. Many such properties have been abandoned or have owners who are unable or unwilling to pay the costs of cleanup.

Eligible projects and products are solid waste cleanup project sites where cleanup is needed to protect public health and safety or the environment within the applicant’s jurisdiction.

Eligible costs are limited to the following:

  • Waste removal and disposal.
  • Security measures such as fences, barriers, warning signs, and other measures to prevent recurring illegal dumping at the remediated sites. These prevention measures and staff time are limited to no more than 25 percent of the overall grant amount. These measures can include public information materials.
  • Health and safety measures required for eligible project work.

These costs may include, but are not limited to, expenditures for contractors, public agency labor, rental equipment, preparation of designs, or consultant services directly associated with an eligible cost item.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

California Labor Code section 1782 will prohibit charter cities from receiving state funds or financial assistance for construction projects if those cities do not comply with sections 1770-1782 of the Labor Code. If any applicants or participating jurisdictions are charter cities or joint powers authorities that include charter cities, the lead participating jurisdiction must certify that Labor Code section 1782 does not prohibit any included charter city from receiving state funds for the project described in this application.

Eligible applicants include public entities, including counties, cities, districts, state agencies, and Joint Powers Authorities.

Joint Powers Authorities (JPA) may submit a grant application as an individual applicant. The JPA must upload a copy of its joint powers agreement giving it authority over solid waste management, listing all member entities, and containing the signature of all members. An entity may not submit an individual application if that entity is also a member of an applicant JPA.
