Research Grant Opportunity, Environmental Research and Education Foundation
The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) is the only private, grant making institution with a national and international scope whose sole mission is to support solid waste research and education initiatives. The research grants program is led by the Research Council (Council), a body of volunteers consisting of technical experts in industry, academia and consulting. The work of the Council is guided by a long range strategic plan with the goal to achieve greater sustainability, good environmental stewardship, higher process efficiency and increased knowledge.
Details on how to submit a proposal or pre-proposal can be found on the EREF webpage.
There are two annual deadlines for solicited proposal submissions: January 5 and July 15
Proposals will be accepted 10 days prior to the deadline dates listed above up to the close of business (5:00 p.m. eastern time) on the deadline date. If not received by this time, proposals will not be considered.

Source Reduction Assistance
Source Reduction Assistance (SRA) awards are issued annually by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Regional Pollution Prevention Programs, subject to Congressional appropriation and the quality of proposals received. The awards help fund environmental projects that reduce or eliminate pollution at the source. Collectively, the Regions are interested in funding projects that support the five strategic goals of EPA’s P2 program – 1) reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs), 2) reduce hazardous materials, 3) increase resource conservation, 4) promote efficient business practices and 5) support P2 integration.

Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) Fund Grants Program
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, working through the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Assistance Committee to the Board, requests applications for implementation projects that promote economic development through the productive management of materials that would otherwise be treated as discards. Eligible proposals may address source reduction, recycling, beneficial use/re-use, anaerobic digestion, or composting for a wide variety of materials. Projects will be funded through the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity Act, which created the Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) grant program to assist the state in achieving its potential to recycle materials, advance economic development, create jobs, and preserve the state’s natural beauty.
This year, the Pollution Prevention Advisory Board and the Assistance Committee to the Board continued to focus the RREO grant program on Hub-and-Spoke development within Colorado. For more information on what Hub-and-Spoke entails, please reference the Hub-and-Spoke informational web page.
