This week, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) announced the availability of grant funds from the Recycling Market Development Program for municipalities, nonprofit organizations, and public and private businesses located and doing business in the state of Indiana.
Eligible candidates should submit proposals that demonstrate an understanding of the changing economy for recyclers, a need for the project, an increase in recyclable materials, a reduction in municipal solid waste shipped for final disposal, and improved partnerships with communities. The Recycling Market Development Board is accepting grant requests until May, which may range from $1,000 to $500,000 with a 50 percent required match. Determinations will be made by the end of the year.
