Every two years, the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) receives funding that is made available to eligible local government entities to advance the goals and strategies found in the regional solid waste management plan. Eligible entities are encouraged to submit applications for local and regional collaborative projects that are consistent with the Regional Materials Management Plan.
Applications are reviewed and scored by the Resource Conservation Council (RCC) and the Materials Management Grant Selection Subcommittee nested in the council, the regional Solid Waste Advisory Council (SWAC). The RCC provides input to develop and update the regional solid waste management plan, identifies solid waste priorities and implementation projects, reviews solid waste grant applications, and makes recommendations on projects to be funded to NCTCOG's Executive Board.
Currently, grant applications are closed. The 2017 Call for Projects will reopen in Summer - Fall 2017.
Applications for grants can be found here.
