The Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca Joint Solid Waste District will offer grants in the second round of the Competitive Funding Program in 2012. Eligible participants are required to attend a meeting prior to submitting an application.
The grant program’s main priority is to set up recycling programs for educational institutions, non-profit organizations, townships, cities and villages in Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties. Once a recycling program has been established, an agency can apply for funds for products made from 25 percent recycled material. The District cannot fund any privately owned businesses.
