The DEQ selected 18 applicants to receive grant awards with funding made available under the authority of Part 169, Scrap Tires, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended. An additional 17 grants, each exceeding $25,000, have been submitted to the State Administrative Board for approval.
Property owners with abandoned scrap tires or scrap tires at collection sites were eligible to apply for scrap tire grants. Of the 35 sites selected for funding, 26 of them will be completely cleaned as a result of the funding with the remaining 9 sites utilizing the funds to create critical fire lanes.
