Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund Requests for Proposals Now Open

The St. Louis Community Foundation is now accepting grant applications for the Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund.

The Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund (Bridgeton Fund) was established in July 2018 with $12.5 million from a legal settlement between the State of Missouri and Republic Services, Allied Services, and Bridgeton Landfill, LLC regarding the subsurface smoldering event at the Bridgeton Landfill in Bridgeton, MO.  The St. Louis Community Foundation is administering the Bridgeton Fund.

Per the terms of the settlement, the Bridgeton Fund will support nonprofit (501c3) organizations working or located within a four-mile radius of the Bridgeton Landfill.  After reviewing the needs of the surrounding community and completing a series of community conversations, the Community Foundation has identified four funding areas:  Public Safety, Access to Health Care, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Community Greening and Gardening.

The following two requests for proposals (RFP) and grant applications are specifically for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and small grants programs.  We invite you to review the RFPs and, if appropriate, consider applying for funding.

In conjunction with the Mental Health and Substance Abuse RFP, we will be hosting a Bidders’ Conference on Tuesday, February 26, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the St. Louis Community Foundation office.  Details are provided in the RFP.  As space is limited, we ask that no more than two people from any one organization attend. There will not be a Bidders’ Conference for the small grants program.
