The EPA is anticipating awarding up to $3 million in funding to eligible grant recipients, and local governments are encouraged to apply. The League continues to support efforts that aid local governments in meeting the state’s ambitious recycling and waste diversion goals, such SB 1383 regulation implementation.
Eligible applications for these grant funds must address one of the following criteria to merit review:
- Support state, tribal, and/or local government programs that seek to use anaerobic digesters to increase their organic waste diversion rates or support other sustainability goals
- Demonstrate and/or implement solutions and/or approaches for increasing anaerobic digestion utilization that can be replicated by other communities, governments, or other entities
- Establish new or expand existing partnerships (public/private partnerships) that result in development of anaerobic digester capacity
