Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, government entities, tribal governments, public universities, colleges, and public schools to reduce the generation of solid waste. Funding is intended to support collaborative projects that promote the reuse and recovery of waste through recycling, composting, or anaerobic digestion.
The Department of Environmental Quality’s Materials Management Program funds projects that support Oregon’s 2050 Vision for sustainable materials management (see Supporting Documents below).
DEQ supports projects such as those linked to changing processes or materials to prevent waste; creating reuse infrastructure; processing and other waste prevention, recycling, composting and waste recovery initiatives.
For project grants, the focus area for 2019 is Partnerships with Community-Based Organizations (CBOs). The Program aims to foster new partnerships between CBOs and environmental organizations in Oregon. Focus points will be given to projects involving two or more organizations where materials management outcomes would assist a local community in Oregon. The implementation must also include extensive involvement from a CBO that is representative of or has successfully served the target community. Applicant must demonstrate that the project would foster or establish a new partnership with a CBO (e.g., a partnership formed January 1, 2016 or later).
