Grants starting at $50,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations and for-profit businesses for recycling infrastructure improvements in the Greater Portland area. Funding is intended for investments in equipment, buildings, machinery, materials, and supplies, permit and licensing fees, professional services, and construction costs.
The main goal of the program is to strengthen local efforts to reduce waste, make better use of the waste that is produced, and help foster economic opportunities for people who have historically been left out of the garbage and recycling system, particularly communities of color.
2019 Priority focus areas: Recycling infrastructure improvements and projects to address commercial sector food waste. Proposals for projects that qualify for these priority focus areas are automatically awarded additional scoring points.

The initial duration of the Investment and Innovation Grant program will be three fiscal years, beginning on July 1, 2018, and ending on June 30, 2021. In the third year, staff will evaluate the program and make a recommendation to the Metro Council on whether it should continue to fund the program. The grant recipient must complete the Metro-funded project within 18 months of the date the grant contract is signed unless otherwise agreed to by Metro. The grant recipient may request that Metro allow an extension of the timeframe for extenuating circumstances.
