STLCF Announces Second Round of RFPs for Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund
The St. Louis Community Foundation has released the second round of requests for proposals (RFP) for the Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund. RFPs are available for the following: Greening, Gardening, and Outdoor Living Initiative and small projects focused on health, public safety and the environment.
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 Access to Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Greening, Gardening, and Outdoor Living.
The following two requests for proposals (RFP) are specifically for Greening, Gardening and Outdoor Living projects and small grants to community organizations.
