Year 1 Innovative Recycling Grants (FY 1997-1998)

In 1997 the Florida Legislature created Section 403.7095(9), F.S., which requires the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to make grant funds available to counties on a competitive basis for innovative programs related to recycling. The purpose of this website is to help guide the Counties, their consultants and other interested parties through this RFP/Grant process for the 1997-98 state fiscal year.
