Project: Municipal Waste Recycling Program (MWRP)
All rounds of grant funding have been completed. No additional funding opportunities will be issued under this program.
The purpose of this Annual Program Statement (APS) was to solicit grant applications for funding available through the Municipal Waste Recycling Program (MWRP) from organizations in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The Development Innovations Group (DIG), which administers the program on behalf of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), was seeking prospective non-governmental partners, such as civil society organizations, youth-led or women-led organizations, private sector companies, associations, cooperatives, and academic institutions, that can implement municipal waste recycling solutions with a focus on reducing plastics pollution of the marine environment in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.
Applicant organizations could propose either starting up or scaling up existing initiatives that provide promising approaches to reduce the amount of plastics entering marine environments. The MWRP has a strong interest in receiving proposals that promote innovative approaches or technologies, and effectively engage underrepresented groups (women, youth, informal waste pickers) as partners. Grant recipients will be expected to share evaluation results and key lessons learned, as well as disseminate periodic information on their activities and outcomes with the broader community engaged with these issues.
