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. Per the terms of the settlement the fund can support nonprofit (501c3) organizations working or located within a four-mile radius of the Bridgeton Landfill. Grants from the fund can support initiatives that contribute to the betterment of the environment, health, and safety of the communities within that area.
The St. Louis Community Foundation manages the grant-making for the Bridgeton Fund. Currently the St. Louis Community Foundation (STLCF) is undertaking an information-gathering process to determine community priorities in the focus areas of public safety, public health and the environment as detailed in the settlement agreement. This process has included one-on-one and small group meetings with stakeholders in the targeted community, focus groups, and community meetings at which input has been solicited.
