Grant Opportunities

The Ashtabula County Solid Waste Management District, under its current Ohio EPA approved SWMD plan, is making reimbursement grant funds available to cities, villages, townships, and public agencies within the district to implement waste reduction, recycling, recycling market development, and composting. 


All cities, villages, and townships are eligible to apply for funding up to a rate of $1.00 per person of their total population, to conduct general cleanup events.  The amount of funding available is based on the 2017 ACS 5 YR Estimate Census population figures provided by the Ohio Department of Development, Office of Strategic Research (see Table 1).  Additional funding may be available to political subdivisions offering additional solid waste services or special projects, at the discretion of the Solid Waste Management District.

Eligibility does not mean that an applicant will receive a grant, it simply indicates that the application will be considered in the District’s selection process.  All eligible grantees must be able to provide the required match for their project. All grants will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
