The Incentive Funding Program provides incentive or seed funding for supplies or other materials needed to begin or expand Greening the Government Programs in State Government facilities.

Proposals for new programs or initiatives are accepted year-round on a rolling basis. Innovative projects are given priority.

Amount Available
$1000 per project from the Greening/Recycling Fund. The available funding has been earned from the sale of recyclable materials collected in the Indiana Government Center / Marion County recycling program).

Match Requirement
No “cash” match is required, however, the requesting agency’s management must demonstrate a strong justification for and commitment to implement the project. The items requested must have a clear connection to a Greening Program objective, and the requesting agency must agree to use the materials provided by this Incentive Funding Program for such Greening program purposes. Cooperative projects involving more than one agency are strongly encouraged.

Eligible Expenses
Items eligible for funding at state facilities include, but are not limited to, reuse or recycling collection bins or containers, educational program signage and other employee educational materials, energy efficiency materials and other innovative Greening Program demonstration projects that are consistent with the Greening Program Implementation Plan. Ownership: The agency applying for the items will be the owner of any items purchased. The applying agency will need to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with IDOA agreeing to use the funded items for the intended Greening Program purposes for two years. Annual follow-up: In order to assess the impact and effectiveness of funded projects, the applying agency will be required to complete a brief project annual report on a form supplied by the Greening the Government Program. As appropriate, these reports will be posted on the Greening web site as success stories.
