Illegal Dumpsite Abatement Application
Introduction: Purpose and Overview
Note:
This application should be used for illegal dumpsite abatement projects only
(tire and non-tire). For all other project types (including illegal dumpsite education
and prevention), please use the Recycling Application.
The purpose of this annual, competitive grant funding is to assist New Mexico
communities to implement projects that will help protect the health of the
environment and residents of New Mexico now and for future generations.
Funding for the Recycling and Illegal Dumping (RAID) grant is made available by fees
paid on state of New Mexico vehicle registrations. The purpose of this grant is to off-
set the environmental impact of scrap tires in the state, as well as provide funding for
recycling and illegal dump projects throughout the state.
Note: This is a reimbursement grant; entities are required to cover the cost of project
expenditures up-front.
