Application Deadline: Composting Grants

Have an idea to build or improve a composting system for your area? Apply by September 16th!


Citizens Committee for New York City, the Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board (SWAB), and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer have partnered to offer grants to start, expand, and grow composting programs in all five boroughs of New York City.

Grants of up to $750 are awarded to community groups working on neighborhood composting programs. Groups eligible for funding include community associations, community gardens, friends of park groups, housing development groups, nonprofits, schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, and private businesses. Grants can be used to purchase materials to start or expand upon a composting program.
