STLCF Hosts Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Bidders’ Conference
Several nonprofit professionals joined the St. Louis Community Foundation (STLCF) on Tuesday, February 26 for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Bidders’ Conference to gain more information about the funding guidelines for the Bridgeton Landfill Community Project Fund (Bridgeton Fund).
The 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.
STLCF manages the grant-making for the Bridgeton Fund and released a request for proposals in early 2019 to the public that outlined guidelines for potential grant seekers including funding priorities, deadlines and review criteria.
