Division Announces Grants Available from Waste Tire Fund
Kentucky Ag Connection - 04/17/2018

Kentucky counties can now apply for $4,000 in waste tire recycling and removal grants from money that is available through the Energy and Environment Cabinet's Division of Waste Management (DWM) Waste Tire Trust Fund.

"Eligible expenses under this grant are the actual costs that the county incurs during the grant period for recycling or disposal of waste tires," said Gary Logsdon, manager of DWM's Recycling and Local Assistance Branch. "Other expenses, such as labor and equipment costs, are not eligible."

The grant period is July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Costs incurred by a county beginning July 1, 2018 for recycling or disposal of waste tires are eligible. Counties must submit receipts for those costs with their close-out report form by July 15, 2019.

Waste tire Grant applications must be submitted no later than May 21. These grants do not require a match. Any unused funds must be returned to the Cabinet by July 31, 2019.

The grant packets will be sent by email to county judge-executives and solid waste coordinators.
