Grants ranging from $25,000 to $75,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations and for-profit businesses for waste reduction projects and programs in the Greater Portland area. The purpose of funding is to support efforts in waste prevention, composting, reuse, recycling, and energy recovery. Funding may be used for a project or a new program or expansion of an existing program.
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.
Investment and Innovation grant funds may be used for the following costs that are directly tied to the project described:
