2012-2013 solid waste grants awarded

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality approved CAPCOG’s recommendation to award more than $350,000 in grant funding for fiscal 2012-2013 solid waste projects, listed in the table below. 

The 10 projects, from community cleanups to a household hazardous waste facility, support the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan.

CAPCOG will next solicit applications for TCEQ’s Regional Solid Waste Grant Program in fall 2013, dependent upon future funding. The program’s funding was reduced 50 percent during the last legislative session.
