District Priority Grant
The District Priority Grant Program will distribute up to $75,000 grant dollars through competitive grants in 2016.
The purpose of the District Priority Grant is to assist communities, schools, and non-profit organizations in implementing innovative waste reduction and recycling programs.

Priorities for the 2016 grant cycle are as follows:
- School District -Wide Waste Diversion
- Special Venue Recycling (entertainment districts, sporting/art venues, parks, etc.)
- Waste Reduction Projects (replacing disposables with reusable tableware, etc.)
The deadline for the 2016 District Priority Grant Application is September 30, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

Residential Recycling Incentive (RRI)
The District divides $1,050,000 annually in RRI funds among Hamilton County communities as an incentive to increase recycling. As a community increases their recycling rate and tons of materials collected the community receives more RRI funds.
