Local Solid Waste Financial Assistance (LSWFA)

The LWSFA Program provides financial assistance to local governments for their solid and hazardous waste planning, and for implementation of eligible projects contained in those plans, and for the enforcement of solid waste related rules and regulations. This is an outcome-based funding opportunity. Expected outcomes must be measurable and should focus on preventing or minimizing waste, and environmental contamination.

The fund source for this financial assistance program comes from the Local Toxics Control Accounts unless otherwise stated. The amount available in a biennium depends on legislative appropriation from the State capital budget.

Local Solid Waste Financial Assistance
