CARE announces availability of grants

March 10, 2003
The Carpet America Recovery Effort, an industry-led effort to reduce the flow of waste carpet to landfills in the United States, announces its first grant cycle. CARE will accept grant proposals for programs that provide for the recycling and/or reuse of post-consumer carpet, or increase the demand for products made from post-consumer carpet.

Individual grants up to $50,000 will be available to private sector applicants in each of three categories: Immediate Processing and End Use, Enhancement of the Collection Infrastructure, and Research and Development of Markets.

The formal request for proposals began Feb. 1 and concludes March 14. For more information contact CARE at www.carpetrecovery.org.
