BACKGROUND The Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Management Grants Program was established in 2006 by Senate Bill 50, effective July 12, 2006, and incorporated as a part of the Kentucky pride fund. KRS 224.43-505(2) (c) specifies the establishment of recycling and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) management grant programs. Who Can Apply? Any county, waste management district, city, urban-county government, or other political subdivision of the state or any combination of the above, including school districts, shall be eligible to apply. Helpful Hint - Approved Agreement Process It is imperative we receive the signed agreement for a grant award by a specific date due to the timing of the end of the commonwealth’s fiscal year. To expedite the quick turnaround of the agreement, the cabinet strongly recommends that the governing body provide written permission, in addition to the approval for the submission of the application, for the chair (judge/executive, mayor, school board chair, etc.) to affix his/her signature to the agreement without the necessity of a formal meeting. The original signed agreement would then be sent to the division for processing of the funds prior to the end of the fiscal year. COMPOSTING GRANTS 1. Composting Grant Information a. Each grantee shall demonstrate that the proposed project will remain financially viable after grant funds have been expended pursuant to KRS 224.43-505 (4) (a). b.

Grantees who do not comply with applicable county or state procurement requirements on purchases shall return grant dollars awarded within forty-five (45) days of cabinet notification. Establishing a recycling program or a recycling facility or relocation of a recycling facility requires an amendment to the “Area Solid Waste Management Plan.” All persons providing collection services, including collection for the purpose of recycling, shall register and report to the county pursuant to KRS 224.43-315(3). Only one application per project. Unspent funds and grant funds not expended in accordance with the grant agreement shall be returned to DWM within forty-five (45) days of cabinet notification. With the exception of allowed match expenditures, no changes or substitutions are allowed after the grant agreement has been accepted without prior written approval from DWM. Upon receipt of a proposed change or substitution by the grantee, DWM shall send a written determination to the grantee within five (5) business days. No changes or substitutions will be considered after the end of the 2nd quarter. The grantee shall be responsible for complying with any applicable permit
