The Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC) is offering up to $10,000 in grants to schools to support new or expanding recycling programs. Both $500 and $1,000 grants are available to public and private K-12 schools in Mississippi. The deadline for submitting applications is Nov 15.

This grant program supports the mission of MRC, a non-profit organization that works to promote and grow recycling efforts in the state. Many of these grants spur recycling not only in the school but in the broader community.
