Closure Notification for the Acceptance of County Planning Grant Applications under Act 101, Section 901 of the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act

[47 Pa.B. 6124]
[Saturday, September 30, 2017]

 Effective September 29, 2017, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will no longer accept applications for grant assistance for municipal solid waste planning and household hazardous waste education under section 901 the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act (53 P.S. § 4000.901).

 To be considered for an award, all section 901 grant applications must be received by the Department no later than September 29, 2017. All applications received on or before September 29, 2017, will be considered for an award. The Act 101 Recycling Fee, which supports this grant program, is set to terminate on January 1, 2020; thus, the Department can no longer accept grant applications because grant awards are based on collection of the Recycling Fee. If the termination date for the Recycling Fee is extended or eliminated, the Department will resume accepting applications under this grant program.

 Inquiries concerning this notice should be directed to Mark Vottero, Bureau of Waste Management at (717) 772-5719 or
