Agenda

Background
The CIWMB receives an annual appropriation from the California Tire Recycling Management Fund to administer the Tire Recycling Act (Act) (Assembly Bill 1843, Brown, Statutes of 1989, Chapter 974) and related legislation. As part of the Act, CIWMB offers the Tire Product Commercialization Grant Program, which is intended to encourage new waste tire products, innovative technologies, and expand existing tire-derived product production. This grant program promotes markets for tire-derived products, and thereby diverts waste tires from disposal and illegal dumping. Tire Product Commercialization Grants are awarded on a competitive basis.

Fiscal Information
One million six hundred thousand dollars ($1,600,000) was available for the Tire Product Commercialization Grant Program in fiscal year 2003/2004. The maximum grant was $250,000. Additionally, these grants are paid on a reimbursable basis.
