NCTCOG encourages cities and colleges to apply to learn and share program best practices, tips, and research to improve recycling programs and deliver more and better recycling to all citizens in the region.
The grants will come in the form of complimentary conference registration and two-night host hotel stay, plus a travel reimbursement of up to $400. The deadline to apply via this online application is midnight EST, June 26, 2017.
Following the conference, all award winners will be asked to submit a brief summary of their experiences and how they plan to use newfound insights to improve their local recycling programs.
