The Materials Management grant program is on pause with an anticipated relaunch date of Summer 2024. The goal of the pause is to streamline the grant process and establish funding priorities that better align with the 2050 Vision and Framework for Action. This will allow the program to better serve all communities across Oregon and enhance transparency and accessibility in future grant cycles. Updates will be posted as soon as the next grant cycle is known.

Community of DEQ Materials Management grantees
DEQ wants to support the community of past grant recipients. Sharing lessons learned, challenges and accomplishments are keys to learn from our peers and build off of their accomplishments. We are all working towards common goals of preventing and reducing waste generation. Here are a couple of project examples from previous Materials Management grant cycles:
- The Rethink Waste Project of The Environmental Center in Bend:
- The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability from the City of Portland and their Deconstruction Grant project
The goals of the project was to increase deconstruction as an alternative to mechanical demolition, build capacity within the salvage industry, promote community awareness of deconstruction and collect and share project data and case studies.
