Grants Available to Develop Waste Tire Market

Dec 1, 2011

The Energy and Environment Cabinet is accepting grant proposals for projects that promote the use of recycled waste tires for athletic fields, playgrounds and other crumb-rubber applications. The cabinet will also consider funding research and development proposals for experimental practices or technologies that further the statutory purposes of the waste tire program - to protect human health, safety and the environment - or that will help develop a market for Kentucky waste tires. About $300,000 is available this grant cycle.
