Each year the District offers grants to local tax-exempt and not-for-profit organizations that take on projects that further the District’s mission of waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. Places of worship, schools, charities, and service organizations are encouraged to apply.
Since 2006, the District has awarded nearly $300,000 in grants to organizations here in Hendricks County. Past projects that have been approved include purchasing new recycling receptacles, recycled plastic picnic tables, dinnerware, water bottle refill stations, reusable shopping totes, and more.
Applications for the Fall 2021 round of the District’s Community Grants Program are now being accepted. All applications must be received by September 24, 2021; awards will likely be announced by November 1, 2021.
