Grants ranging from $750 to $2,000 to New York City nonprofits, for-profits, schools, individuals, groups, community and neighborhood associations, researchers, professors, and student groups to promote recycling and waste prevention. Applications are invited for innovative reuse and repair strategies within the borough.
The NYC Reduce, Reuse, and Repair grant program supports groups and individuals to start new reuse, repair, waste prevention or upcycling projects, undertake related research projects, or initiate other activities which will help lead to waste prevention or reuse and repair models that can be replicated in other parts of the city.
The goal of the grant is to help the City of New York reduce waste generation and reuse 100% of all discarded products that can be reused, repaired, refurbished, or salvaged for spare parts, with the balance being recycled. For more specific information about the goals of the program, see: https://www.citizensnyc.org/sites/default/files/public-attachments/grants/2019_reduce_reuseand_repair_grant_instructions_0.pdf#page=3
