The Maryland Department of Agriculture is accepting grant proposals for the department’s Animal Waste Technology Fund. The fund has $3.35 million available to invest in innovative technologies during fiscal year 2021, which ends June 30, 2021.
For the first time, innovative technology proposals that treat animal waste streams, in addition to animal manure, will be accepted. This would include dairy waste water, poultry processing waste, and livestock mortalities. Animal waste technology projects that are cost-effective, proven, innovative, and adaptable to Maryland will be considered. Proposals must be submitted by December 31, 2020.
