Food Recovery Infrastructure Grant Awards under the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act of 1988, Act 101

[53 Pa.B. 5577]
[Saturday, September 2, 2023]

 The Department of Environmental Protection announces the following grants to Commonwealth nonprofit organizations under section 501(c)(3) for recycling programs under the Food Recovery Infrastructure Grant Program (26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(3)). This funding offers grant assistance for the proper management and operation of food waste reduction under the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act (act) (53 P.S. §§ 4000.101—4000.1904). Approximately $4.2 million in grants was awarded to 114 nonprofits as outlined as follows.

 Grant funds are used for the procurement of eligible equipment to reduce food waste disposal from food retailers, wholesalers, agriculture organizations, farms and cooperatives by repurposing and redistributing apparently safe and wholesome foods to Commonwealth nonprofits that provide food to segments of the public. Grant awards are predicated on the receipt of recycling fees required by sections 701 and 702 of the act (53 P.S. §§ 4000.701 and 4000.702) and the availability of moneys in the Recycling Fund.

 Inquiries regarding the grant offerings should be directed to Mark Vottero, Recycling Grants Coordinator, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Waste Management, Division of Waste Minimization and Planning, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P.O. Box 8472, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8472.
