Reduce, Reuse, and Repair Grant

Citizens Committee for New York City is partnering with the Manhattan Solid Waste Advisory Board (MSWAB) and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer for the NYC Reduce, Reuse, and Repair Grant. 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.

THE APPLICATION IS NOW AVAILABLE, PLEASE TAKE CARE TO READ ALL OF THE BELOW INFORMATION!
