Accepting applications for funding to support sustainable materials management project

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality seeks project proposals that enhance or support innovative waste reduction or prevention.

The funding is made possible through a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Sustainable Materials Management Program, which promotes using and reusing materials more productively over their entire lifecycles.

As much as $133,300 will be available to support selected projects between November 7, 2022, and November 3, 2023.
