CARE’s California Carpet Stewardship Program has announced a new pilot grant program to provide funding to establish, increase, improve and enhance California-generated post‑consumer carpet collection, recycling, diversion, and utilization of recycled content product manufacturing. The Cycle 1 Pilot funding will seek proposals from eligible applicants for capital to establish new facilities or expand existing capacity and throughput; funds are also available to support product testing, in line with Program goals.

CARE will hold a webinar on Wednesday, November 18 to describe the proposed pilot program and gain stakeholder input prior to releasing the final grant notice. All stakeholders are invited to register for the one-hour webinar here.
