Knowledge is power Community POWER program seeks applicants to educate residents on reducing waste

Community POWER, a program of the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board that includes six metro area counties, is looking for applicants to propose new and innovative ways to educate and actively engage Twin Cities residents in their purchasing, reusing and hazardous waste disposal behaviors in an effort to reduce waste.


Non-profit organizations and schools are eligible for grants of $5,000 and $12,000 to fund their projects. Applications are available at and must be submitted by March 24.


In the past, grantees have used classes, workshops, events, videos, art projects and more to reach their audiences. Those who want to learn more about the grant program can attend an informational meeting from noon–1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Roseville Public Library, 2180 Hamline Ave. N., Roseville.
