FRANKFORT (AP) - Projects to use recycled waste tires for athletic fields, playgrounds or other applications could be eligible for a grant from the Energy and Environment Cabinet.
The General Assembly established the Waste Tire Trust Fund in 1998 to receive fees collected from new tire sales, and the funding comes from that.
The cabinet said in a statement it will also consider funding research and development proposals for experimental practices or technologies that further the waste tire program's purposes - to protect human health, safety and the environment - or that help develop a market for Kentucky waste tires.
Applications must be in by 4:30 p.m. EST Jan. 31. For more information, contact Lisa Evans at (502) 564-6716 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and the application are available at www.waste.ky.gov/RLA/grants/Pages/default.aspx.
