Solid Waste Management Assistance Funds Available from EPA Region III

Region III of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is soliciting pre-proposals for grants or cooperative agreements that address solid waste generation and management issues at the local, state, regional and/or national levels.

Pre-proposals are due March 25.

These innovative projects should be reproducible throughout Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia and need to address any of the priorities areas, reducing the generation and disposal of municipal solid waste, especially paper and food waste, through reuse, recycling, composting, market development or product stewardship.

Eligible applications include state and local governments and non-profit organizations. Applicants are encouraged to partner and collaborate on projects with other organizations involved in similar efforts. The solicitation describes the program goals and priorities and gives general information on the application and selection process, pre-proposal format, and evaluation criteria.

Most awards are for less than $15,000 and approximately $40,000 is available.

For more information, visit the Solid Waste Proposal webpage or contact Mike Giuranna, EPA Region 3, by e-mail to or call 215-814-3298.
