Grants Program in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam to Reduce Plastics Pollution Entering the Oceans

The Municipal Waste Recycling Program (MWRP) is a four-year, USAID-funded initiative to address the global problem of marine plastics pollution. The Program provides grants and technical assistance to support promising municipal waste management and recycling efforts in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam, countries which currently are experiencing problems with plastics waste entering their marine environments. Indonesia joined the Program in January 2018.

The Municipal Waste Recycling Program awards grants of USD 50,000 to USD 250,000 to support innovative and/or scalable solid waste management and recycling activities that will promote social inclusion, generate jobs and economic growth, reduce plastics pollution, and strengthen climate resilience.

The Program is open to registered Indonesian non-governmental organizations, for-profit companies, universities, associations, cooperatives, and U.S. and international non-governmental organizations.  Government entities are not eligible to receive MWRP funding.

Grant applications or concept notes are being accepted on a rolling basis. Applications will be reviewed each quarter. The deadline for the next round of submissions is March 31, 2018.
