Every two years the Texas Legislature meets and sets the budget for the upcoming biennium. The budget includes money collected as a tipping fee at landfills throughout the state and designated to fund solid waste management programs in Texas. H-GAC receives a portion of this money, as pass-through funding from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), to fund Solid Waste Implementation grant projects throughout the 13-county region on an annual basis.
Upcoming Grant Cycle
Grant funds for FY2020/2021 have been distributed. The next call for grant applications is currently expected to occur in the fall of 2021, although it is subject to change.
If you would like to be added to the grant notification list, or if you would like more information about the grant program in general, please contact Erin Livingston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
