We are pleased to announce the first round of Circular Cleveland Community Grants. A total of $40,771 was awarded through this process to fourteen groups in Cleveland and East Cleveland. Grant recipients will utilize funds to divert waste from the landfill, reduce pollution, keep products and materials in use, and restore and renew the natural system.

The Circular Cleveland Grant Making Committee, all local residents involved in Circular Economy initiatives, chose these groups and organizations for funding based on their level of focus on circular economy principles, on their connection to their neighborhood, and on the potential replicability of their initiative. Congratulations to these groups and organizations:
