ENR Funding Opportunity - Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative

Public Service Announcement

Yellowknife — April 7, 2021

Do you have an idea for how to reduce, reuse and recycle waste in your community, but need some financial support?

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) is accepting applications for the Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative.

This program provides up to $50,000 in financial assistance to NWT municipalities, Indigenous governments and organizations, schools, organizations, businesses, and individuals to complete projects that reduce waste generation, reuse materials and products, recycle materials (that are not already collected through an NWT recycling program) and recover a useful benefit from waste.

More details, including the Funding Guidelines, Application Form, and the Project Plan & Budget Templates, can be found on ENR’s website at https://www.enr.gov.nt.ca/en/services/apply-waste-reduction-and-recycling-initiative-funding

The deadline for applications is April 22, 2021. If you have questions about the application process, please contact Erica Baranik at (867) 767-9236 ext. 53185  or erica_baranik@gov.nt.ca.

We would appreciate it if you could help spread the word about this initiative.  A poster is attached – please post it in your community if possible (cette affiche est aussi disponible en français). Also, please forward this email to anyone that you think may be interested.
