The program consists of the Small County Consolidated Waste Grant which is issued annually.
Once the grants are executed, all reimbursement requests for the counties' various grants are reviewed and processed. The requests are examined to ensure that money is being spent in accordance with grant rules and conditions before they are sent to the Comptroller for payment.
The program staff also answers questions from local governments concerning what is allowable under the grants, refers questions of a programmatic nature to the proper personnel, assists the department's Inspector General's office in developing and clarifying policy, and institutes new or innovative grant programs as they are enacted by the Legislature.
