Act 101 Grants

PRC has assisted many counties, municipalities and councils of government with Act 101 PA State recycling grants. PRC is available to assist with program development, grant writing, data collection and analysis.

Act 101 created four grant programs — each with a specific purpose and set of incentives:

  • 901 – Planning Grants. This program directly funds “80% of the approved cost” of complying with the planning requirements of Act 101.
  • 902 – Grants for the development and implementation of municipal recycling programs. 902 grants support equipment, education, and the development of markets for recycling.
  • 904 – Performance Grants for municipal recycling programs. 904 grants serve as a bounty on recycling, with the State offering a set dollar amount per ton of recycling which is collected and marketed from within a municipality’s boundaries.
