RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution authorizing the submittal of applications for all California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) grants for fiscal years 2008/09 – 2013/14, for a period of up to five years from date of adoption, and authorizing the City Manager or his/her designee to execute any and all documents necessary to secure CIWMB grant funds.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 13, 2003, by Resolution 2856, City Council authorized the City Manager or his designee the authority to execute all necessary documents for the purpose of securing 2003/04 – 2008/09 Used Oil Grant funds.

On May 27, 2008, by Resolution 2008-119, City Council adopted a Resolution authorizing the submittal of grant applications, for up to five years, to the California Integrated Waste Management Board for funding from the Targeted Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Incentive Grant Program and authorizing the City Manager or her designee to execute any and all documents necessary to secure grant funds for the Pavement Management Program, CIP 336-30830.

BACKGROUND
Public Resources Code Sections 40000 et seq. authorize the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) to administer various grant programs in furtherance of the State of California’s (State) efforts to reduce, recycle, and reuse solid waste generated in the State; thereby, preserving landfill capacity and protecting public health and safety and the environment.

The CIWMB offers funding opportunities authorized by legislation to assist public and private entities in the safe and effective management of the waste stream. Some common CIWMB grant programs include the following:

• Farm and Ranch Cleanup Grants – Provide funding to cities, counties, resource conservation districts and Native American tribes for the cleanup of illegal solid waste sites on farm or ranch property.

• Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Grants – Provide local government funding for programs to expand or initially implement HHW programs such as collection programs, educational programs, load checking programs, and programs emphasizing waste reduction, source reduction, reuse, or recycling of HHW.

• Landfill Closer Loans – Provide zero interest loans to operators of unlined, older-technology landfills who are interested in early closure of their facilities.

• Local Enforcement Agency Grants – Provide grant funds based on population and solid waste facilities to assist in their solid waste facilities permit and inspection program.

• Reuse Assistance Grants – This competitive grant program provides incentives for local public agencies to promote and apply the concept of reuse to their business communities.

• Solid Waste Disposal and Site Cleanup Grants – Local governments can apply for funds to finance a wide range of remediation projects, including funds for cleanup or emergency actions, loans to responsible parties, or matching funds to assist in remediation of environmental problems at landfill.

• Sustainable Building Grants – Provide local government funding for projects that advance the use of green building design and construction practices in California.

• Tire Recycling, Cleanup, and Enforcement Grants – Grant programs are available to local governments for the purpose of diverting tires from landfill disposal by promoting markets of recycled-content products, as well as for enforcement and cleanup.

• Used Oil Grants – Grant programs are available for assisting local governments, nonprofit entities, and other parties for activities that encourage appropriate disposal and recycling of used oil.


In order to take advantage of CIWMB grant funds, City staff is required to submit annual applications as well as an adopted City Resolution, authorizing the City Manager or his/her designee to execute any and all documents necessary to secure CIWMB grant funds.

By approval of the Resolution, staff will be able to submit all CIWMB Grants/Applications, for up to five years, and execute any and all documents necessary to secure the grant funds for projects such as the Pavement Management Program, CIP 336-30830 and the Used Oil Collection Program that encourages recycling or appropriate disposal of used oil.

FISCAL IMPACT
The grants do not require a local match of funds. The maximum funding any jurisdiction may be awarded is $250,000. City staff has budgeted with a conservative assumption that CIWMB grants will go unfunded. Should these grants be awarded, a savings of equal value will be recognized in the annual operating budget.
