Grants to Minnesota counties and special districts for projects related to waste management. Funding is intended to plan and implement new programs; manage established programs, improve transportation networks, expand alliances; share resources, services, and facilities; promote economic development; and support solid waste management among political subdivisions. Proposed plans should include three or more counties and/or districts.
Projects demonstrating innovation and those benefiting underserved communities and areas of concern for environmental justice will be rated higher. The MPCA considers communities with higher concentrations of low-income residents and people of color, including tribal communities, to be areas of concern for environmental justice.
The purpose of the EA Grant Program is to provide financial assistance for researching, developing, or implementing projects and practices related to all aspects of waste management and prevention, including hazardous substances, toxic pollutants, and problem materials. Additionally, market development and education grants are also allowed under the laws governing these grants.
