Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) - Bureau of Waste Management
10/01/18 5:00 PM Receipt
Grants to Nevada nonprofits, municipalities, IHEs, schools, and other public institutions for projects to increase solid waste recycling in the State. Funding is also intended for programs that will raise public awareness of the importance of recycling and of conservation of natural resources.
NDEP encourages action-oriented projects rather than projects oriented toward research and development. Proposals should be realistic, specific, focused, have an effective delivery system, identify a target audience and be reasonable and appropriate for the amount of funding requested. Proposals which demonstrate the likelihood of being financially self-sustaining at the projects’ conclusion will be favored.
Preference will be given to applications that provide the greatest regional coverage and/or sustainability projects.
Grant funds may be used for personnel, operating expenses, travel, subcontractors, and equipment purchases which support goals of the project and the grant program.
Priority will be given to applicants including the following:
- Projects demonstrating a clear and concise mechanism to help meet the 25% recycling rate.
- Sustainable recycling program funding mechanisms (existing or proposed) that demonstrate a commitment to ongoing education.
- Projects demonstrating local and/or regional support.
- Partnership commitments for development and distribution of recycling education item(s).
- Products printed double-sided on recycled content paper.
