Grant Workshops

Division of Solid Waste Management staff hosts grant workshops following the opening date of most new grant solicitations.  These workshops and grant offerings are available to Tennessee counties, municipalities, and organizations which have been determined to be tax exempt nonprofit recycling organizations who are designated as 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service  under T.C.A. § 68-211-825.

These workshops provide guidance for submitting better grant applications and claritifications for common areas of confusion. This will also be a time for applicants to ask questions and provide feedback to TDEC on grant manual development, narrative development, solicitation announcements, and future grant offerings. In many cases, workshop attendees submit applications which receive higher ratings and increased likelihood of receiving funds.
