Grant and Loan Programs


Recycling and Illegal Dumping Fund Grants

APPLICATIONS DUE 5:00PM, JANUARY 13, 2017

Recycling and Illegal Dumping Fund grant applications for scrap tire management, illegal dumping abatement, and recycling projects are currently being accepted. Municipalities, counties, solid waste authorities, cooperative associations (as defined in the RAID Act), land grant communities, pueblos, tribes, and nations are eligible for funds totaling $800,000. Two-thirds will be awarded for scrap tire projects, and one-third will be awarded for other projects.

Applicants are encouraged to apply for significant projects that will expend substantial funding. NMED seeks to award fewer grants that will individually accomplish more than a multitude of smaller projects. However, applicants should not be discouraged from applying for smaller projects that are in need.

Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis for the state fiscal year starting on July 1, 2017 and ending on June 30, 2018. Although projects must be completed within this time period, multi-year projects designed with phases corresponding to these fiscal year grant cycles will receive special consideration.

This is a reimbursement grant program. The grantee must be able to incur the costs until NMED issues the reimbursement. Land grant communities that have no financial structure (checking account, fees, etc.) are encouraged to partner with the county in which they are located.

Grant recipients will be notified by April 7, 2017.

Contact Neal Denton, Recycling Program Coordinator, for assistance at (505) 827-2653 or neal.denton@state.nm.us.

Solid Waste Facility Grant Applications -- NOW CLOSED

The total pool of funding available for this grant opportunity is $100,000.  NMED, Solid Waste Bureau expects that in most cases a single grant award would not exceed $35,000, unless exceptional need is demonstrated and the applicant clearly shows how funding of a project will be protective of public health and the environment.

Grant applicants will be notified after grants applications are evaluated and rated.
