The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) offers competitive grants for environmental protection and efficiency improvement for municipalities, community organizations, not-for-profit organizations and others.

The DEC  previouysly awarded funding via a competitive process to communities for Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection days and construction of permanent HHW collection facilities. This project aimed to provide a safe alternative for recycling or disposal of household hazardous materials. A maximum of $2,000,000 was awarded to municipalities.

The DEC website has a list of competitive grants available annually. Each link has an FAQ about the grant opportunity. NOTE that not all of the DEC’s grants are listed on the site, so make sure you check the NYS grants gateway portal too!
