- Grant Cycle
The district, comprised of Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte, and Ray Counties and all cities therein, receives funds from the Missouri Solid Waste Management Fund to reduce the amount of waste entering our landfills.
Any municipality, county, public institution, not-for-profit organization, private business or individual currently operating in the District is eligible to apply.
Grants are for one-year projects.
Applications are evaluated using criteria set forth in Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) regulations and are reviewed by a committee of five to eight volunteers, representing a variety of professional backgrounds.
Recommendations for funding are presented to the district’s executive board and are submitted to the state for final approval.
A $2.11 fee is collected on each ton of solid waste disposed in Missouri landfills or transferred to out-of-state facilities.
These funds support solid waste management and diversion programs coordinated by the state’s 20 solid waste districts, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, and EIERA Missouri Market Development Program.
