Financing Resources

CalRecycle Grants and Loans

Most of the CalRecycle grant and loan funds are provided directly to the host city or county who then has discretion, within limits, on how they are expended. Contact your local government recycling coordinator for more information on how local uses are determined.

Other Grants and Loans

  • Statewide Grants Listing. Lists grant programs from a variety of State agencies by category.
  • Federal Grants. The federal government has a single, comprehensive Web site that contains information about finding and applying for all federal grant programs. More than 800 grant programs in all 26 federal grant-making agencies are now listed.

More Funding Resources

  • Recycling Refund. If your venue operations generate used motor or lubricating oil, you can register as a generator to receive 16 cents per gallon when you properly recycle your oil.
