Grant Application

NOTE: Currently, ARTS does not have grant funds available for this fiscal year (July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2011). Please check back as funds may be available again in future fiscal years.

ARTS grants are available to any municipality or publicly-funded agency in South Carolina for any civil engineering project using whole tires, shredded tires, chipped tires, crumb rubber, etc. This includes uses such as:

Shredded Tire Embankments
Drainage Layers
Retaining Wall Backfill
Whole Tire Retaining Walls
Rubberized Asphalt

ARTS also welcomes applicants to suggest project ideas not listed here. All grant applications must be approved by ARTS and the SC Waste Tire Committee.

Grant money comes from the state's Waste Tire Trust Fund. A $2 fee is paid on each new tire sold in South Carolina. Of that fee, 50 cents is placed in the Waste Tire Trust Fund. The fund is used for grants to local governments and to promote the collection and recycling of waste tires. Grants are now accepted on an on-going basis.

Criteria for funding consideration:

RFP requirements met
Sustainability and need
Technical and financial feasibility
Tonnage affected
Innovations involved
