Notice: Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program
During the 2023 legislative session, the Colorado General Assembly passed HB 23-1194, creating the Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program. The Program will provide grants to eligible local governments to assist with the costs of environmental remediation efforts for and management of closed landfills owned by local governments. HB 23-1194 directs the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to begin administering the grant program on, or after July 1, 2024.
The bill created the Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program Advisory Committee to review grant applications and advise the us on awarding grants to eligible closed landfills.
The bill directs the Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission to appoint the Advisory Committee members and to adopt rules on how the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will administer the grant program. Rules must be adopted by June 1, 2024.
This Solid Waste and Materials Management Program intends to present the rule package for adoption at the Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission’s May 2024 hearing. Draft rules and stakeholder notices will be posted on the Solid Waste and Materials Management Program’s stakeholder webpage.
