[35 Pa.B. 6958]

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces that it is accepting Resource Recovery Demonstration Grant applications from counties, municipalities and municipal authorities within this Commonwealth under the Pennsylvania Solid Waste-Resource Recovery Development Act (35 P. S. §§ 755.1--755.14). Projects must be capable of demonstrating, for a minimum of 2 years, the production of energy or the recovery of materials from solid waste (except sewage sludge). Grant applications must meet the terms and conditions established in 25 Pa.  Code Chapter 76 (relating to solid waste--resource recovery development).

   The Department is particularly interested in receiving applications for projects to implement unique and innovative curbside collection programs for food waste that result in environmentally sound alternatives to landfilling. All projects must be capable of being replicated in other areas of this Commonwealth.

   Applicants must provide a business plan and market commitments for energy or materials produced by the demonstration project. All projects should be capable of reaching full-scale production within 12 months of notice of a grant award.

   A lead municipality or county serving as the development agency for regional projects must have resolutions from other participating counties or municipalities in support of the project. Counties and municipalities may sponsor cooperative projects with private sector entities provided that a minimum of 5% equity in the project is maintained by the development agency for the term of the demonstration period.

   The Department will award up to $250,000 this grant round. The Department reserves the right to partially fund all or none of the grants submitted during this grant round. A minimum of 25% local matching funds is required including at least a 5% equity share in the project by the applicant.

   The deadline for submission of grant applications is 3 p.m. April 6, 2006. Applications must be on forms provided by the Department. Applications received by the Department or postmarked after the deadline will not be considered during this application solicitation.

   Counties and municipalities must contact the appropriate Department Planning and Recycling Coordinator listed below to obtain a grant application.
