This is the second webinar on this topic organized as part of its support of the "Recycling Is Infrastructure Too" Campaign by the National Recycling Coalition (NRC). Here is the link to the first webinar on March 16, 2022. In the May webinar, NRC will highlight the results of additional research it has been conducting on the availability of Federal funding for waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting. This webinar will include information about Resource Recycling’s Grant Watch, including federal Requests for Applications (RFAs) and examples of federal grants that have been highlighted in Grant Watch. The webinar will also provide an overview of Brownfields grants available from the US Environmental Protection Agency. It will also highlight how to get organized for getting federal grants, particularly developing community-driven and community-based teams.
