Untitled document

The School Waste Reduction Grant Program has been combined with the District Priority Grant Program and will distribute grant dollars through competitive grants in 2015.

The purpose of the District Priority Grant is to assist communities, schools, and non-profit organizations in implementing innovative waste reduction and recycling programs. The District intends the District Priority Grant to unify waste reduction and recycling efforts across Hamilton County by addressing three key solid waste issues. Priorities for the 2015 grant cycle are as follows:

  • Recycling in public areas
  • School district-wide waste diversion projects
  • Reusing or recycling textiles


The deadline for the 2015 District Priority Grant Application is September 30, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. For more information regarding the District Priority Grant Program or to receive an email notification when the application is available, contact Michelle Balz at (513) 946-7789.
