Grants to municipalities help manage the cost associated with landfill and/or incinerator closures. Grants reimburse municipalities 20 percent of eligible capital costs, which can include:
- Hydrogeological elements.
- Engineering investigation and design.
- Construction of closure elements in accordance with plans and specifications approved by DES pursuant to the New Hampshire Solid Waste Rules.
- Construction supervision.
Eligible costs do not include land acquisition (except for land which is necessary to the physical elements of closure), administrative, legal and fiscal costs, nor costs for post-closure monitoring and maintenance.
