Tomorrow Oct 7: RDNO Hosting Online Webinar on ReTHINK Waste Grant Program

Posted Tuesday, October 6, 2020

The Regional District of North Okanagan will host a webinar tomorrow, Wednesday, October 7, at 2:00 p.m. about their ReTHINK Waste grant program. The information session will give viewers a clear idea of the types of waste reduction programs that are eligible for grant funding and share some case studies of innovative projects. $50,000 is available in grant funding for the 2021 intake.

The funding is intended to act as seed money to kickstart new projects that keep materials out of the landfill. Applicants can look to existing programs in other regions and apply them to the North Okanagan. Some examples include starting a repair café, a tool library, or a service to repurpose fabric into reusable bags. Creativity is encouraged.

The webinar will be quick and informative with an interactive question and answer period. It is free to watch the webinar. Registration is required, and can be completed at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_RMSXU-mMSIiJrDcTGRxfbQ

The application deadline for the grant program is October 31, 2020. Learn more about the ReTHINK grant at www.rdno.ca/rethink
