Recycling Grants

The 2015-2017 state budget continued the municipal and county recycling grant program but reduced total funding for the program by $4 million in 2016. The $4 million cut is restored in 2017 so that the total funding level in the second year of the state budget (2017) rebounds back to the 2015 level, which is $19 million.  So, your community's 2017 recycling grants should be close in amount to the payments you received in 2015.
