The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board (SWAB) is partnering with Citizens Committee for New York City and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer to launch a new grant initiative: NYC Reuse and Repair. The goal of the grant is to support New York City in reusing, repairing, and refurbishing 100% of all discarded products that can be reused in some capacity, with the balance being recycled.
Grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded to start new reuse or repair projects, undertake related research projects, or initiate other activities which will help lead to replicable reuse or repair models in all five boroughs of New York City.
Proposals must be completed and submitted by 11:59pm, September 12, 2017.
The Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to increasing recycling, reducing solid waste, and advancing solid waste policy in New York City. The Board is comprised of waste and recycling industry experts and concerned citizens, appointed by the Manhattan Borough President’s Office.
