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.
