SMM Funding Database

SU-CSCS/EFC has developed an online database of funding opportunities, including grants and low-interest loans, to assist communities, nonprofit organizations, school districts, and other stakeholders with identifying financial support for sustainable materials management initiatives (i.e., waste reduction, reuse, and recycling). Scroll through the listings to explore relevant SMM funding opportunities. To view more listings, use the navigation buttons located below the table. Click on listings of interest to learn details about those funding opportunities including eligible recipients, acceptable projects, funding amounts, deadlines, and more.

Listings are tagged with relevant keywords such as “State”, “NYSDEC”, “Schools”, “Recycling”, and others. Type one or more keywords into the search box to narrow listings by interest. Questions about the database can be directed to SU-CSCS Program Coordinator, Jesse Kerns, at jekerns@syr.edu or (315) 443-8488.
