Waste Grant Online Applications Now Available

Applications Due by 4 p.m. February 5

Jan. 2, 2015 – The online application and instructions for those applying for 2015 Waste Reduction and Recycling Incentive grants is now available. The deadline for filing applications for 2015 is 4 p.m. Feb. 5, 2015. Below is a link to the waste grants program page, which provides access to grant applications and instructions:

“This is the second year that NDEQ has provided the online process for these grants,” said Steve Danahy, Supervisor of NDEQ’s Planning and Aid Unit. “The online process improves the agency’s efficiency and record-keeping, and reduces paper waste. It also saves the applicants time, reduces errors in filling out the applications, and provides a more direct method for them to submit their information.”

To ensure consistency in the grant application process, this electronic submission format is the only application method accepted for Waste Reduction and Recycling Grants, Deconstruction Grants, and Scrap Tire Management Grants. The exception to this new process is Cost-Sharing for Scrap Tire Processing, Manufacturing and Civil Engineering Uses, which still must be completed on paper and submitted to NDEQ by February 1, 2015.

Those with questions regarding the grants and the application process can contact NDEQ’s Planning and Aid Unit at (402) 471-0273, or can contact the agency at
