Delaware announces grant availability for fiscal year 2006.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), in cooperation with the Governor's Recycling Public Advisory Council (RPAC), is accepting applications for the fiscal year 2006 Recycling Assistance Grant Program.

The program has $50,000 available to local governments, community organizations and educational institutions to help boost recycling in the state. Grant recipients are required to provide 25 percent of total project funding either in cash or in in-kind services.

The grant money may be used to help finance programs that will keep material out of the state's landfills and bring Delaware closer to its 30 percent diversion goal.

DNREC staff is available to provide technical and administrative assistance to grant applicants. The DNREC encourages interested parties to work closely with the department to ensure that application proposals are complete and fully address grant criteria. Grant awards will be determined by the DNREC and the RPAC.

The selection process is designed to be competitive and assigns greater weight to projects that are most responsive in addressing grant program criteria and that are judged to have the greatest potential to increase diversion, according to a press release from the DNREC.

Completed applications are due Jan. 31 and grant awards will be announced during March.

Application packets or general information regarding the grant program are available through Janet Manchester, DNREC, at (302) 739-9403 or at Janet. Manchester@state.de.us. More information and downloadable grant applications are available online at www.dnrec.state.de.us/dnrec2000/Recycling.asp.
