The program is intended to help Massachusetts recycling processors and manufacturers create sustainable markets for eligible materials, and to add value to municipal and business recycling efforts.

Selected applicants will receive grant awards of between $50,000 and $400,000.

Targeted materials for the 2021 grants are container glass, furniture, construction and demolition materials, textiles, food materials, and mattresses.
