According to their website, the DEQ “strives to make grant funding available annually to support projects that will contribute to Michigan’s environment through enhanced materials management.”

Those thinking they ran out of time to apply for grants now have just a bit more time.

Funding for recycling infrastructure grants was recently increased and the deadline to apply for the money was extended until May 1.

Funding for the grants, administered by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), has been increased from $500,000 to $3.7 million, according to a news release.

The department originally announced the grant opportunity last November. The grants are used to support statewide recycling goals by increasing the recycling rate and access by investing in recycling infrastructure.

Because of the increase in funding, the DEQ has extended the application period through May 1. The recycling infrastructure grant is part of the DEQ’s sustainability grants, which include scrap tire cleanup and scrap tire market development grants. The increased funding comes from the recently established Renew Michigan Fund.

Eligible for the grants are cities, villages, townships, charter townships, counties, tribal governments, municipal solid waste or resource recovery authorities, nonprofit organizations, school districts, health departments, colleges and universities, and regional planning agencies. The maximum per-grant request is $1 million.
