EPA developed this grant resource guide to help tribes, Alaska native villages, and community and nonprofit organizations identify financial assistance opportunities for their solid waste management programs. It provides information on developing effective grant proposals and describes potential funding sources for solid waste management activities. The first part of this guide lists federal grant sources for solid waste management activities. The second part describes private grant sources, generally available to nonprofit organizations. Information on each grant's goal, eligibility requirements, application process, fund availability, and previous grands awarded is included. The sources included indicated that solid waste management is of interest to them, but it mighjt not be the main thrust of their grant programs. It also should be noted that additional sources of funding for solid waste management might be available from organizations or agencies not included in this guide.
