Ohio EPA Grants
The Ohio EPA (Environment Protection Agency) offers numerous grants each year to students, schools, businesses, and organizations that are eligible. For more information, visit the Ohio EPA.
Community grants allow Ohio communities to support and expand community recycling and litter prevention efforts. Grants provide funding for new equipment infrastructure for collection and materials processing. Those eligible to apply include municipal corporations, counties, townships, villages, state colleges or universities, solid waste management districts and authorities, park districts, health districts and statewide recycling and litter prevention trade associations. The grant requires 50 percent matching funds to be available and spent on the approved project.
Litter Management Grant
Litter management grants allow Ohio communities and nonprofit organizations to support litter and tire amnesty collection projects. Grant proposals must include an actual cleanup activity to take place on public land or public waterways, and involve the use of volunteers.
Market Development Grant
Market Development Grants are offered to Ohio businesses and nonprofit organizations that propose to create equipment infrastructure for successful markets of recyclable materials and related products. Applicants must be sponsored by an eligible governmental agency who will serve as the grant applicant and a pass-through agency for documenting and receiving funds. The business or nonprofit organization must commit to provide one hundred percent (100%) matching funds. The grant has a maximum duration of 24 months.
Scrap Tire Grant
Scrap tire grants provide financial assistance to Ohio’s local entities to convert manufacturing operations to accept scrap tire material, expand tire processing operations, or utilize scrap tire material in civil engineering projects or manufactured products. The applicant must be a municipality, township, county, solid waste management district or authority, board of education or joint vocational school, state college or university or park district. Businesses or non-profit organizations may also receive scrap tire market development funding, but must secure a local government sponsor to serve as the grant applicant. The sponsored business or nonprofit organization must commit to provide 100 percent matching funds. The grant has a maximum duration of 24 months.
