CARE announces a new cycle of its successful Micro Grants Program for Collection/Reuse.
The purpose of the Micro Grants Program for Collection/Reuse – Cycle 4M is to promote the additional collection and reuse of California post-consumer carpet (PCC). The definition of “additional” under this program is PCC that was previously sent to landfill, alternative daily cover, waste-to-energy, kiln or used for carpet-as-alternative-fuel. Cycle 4M funds will be awarded for the infrastructure projects and/or purchase of equipment that supports the operational logistics of properly collecting and/or reusing California PCC under a new or established program.
$100,000 is funded for Cycle 4M (2021/22) Micro Grants Program for Collection/Reuse. Maximum grant awards for Cycle 4M will be limited to $15,000 for each grant awarded under this Program.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a continuous basis through 2021. Grantees must achieve project completion by December 31, 2022, or within one year of the project’s Notice to Proceed, whichever comes first.
