The Washington Department of Ecology is currently accepting applications for Public Participation Grants (PPGs). The PPG program is a competitive grant program. Grants are available to individuals affected by a contaminated site, or to non-profit public service organizations. The purpose of these grants is to facilitate public participation in:

•       The cleanup of hazardous substance release sites, or
•       The implementation of the state’s solid and hazardous waste priorities.

Applications are available through Ecology’s Administration of Grants and Loans (EAGL) online grant management system.  You will need to set up a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account before you can access EAGL.

The application will be open until 5 p.m. on April 29, 2021. Late applications will not be accepted. Ecology will evaluate and score each eligible application received. Grant funds are available for projects conducted July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2023. Please read the program guidelines and the application instructions before you apply.
