For 2016, the CIF introduced a new container subsidy program to encourage greater participation in the CCPP. A 5% reimbursement will be provided on a first come first serve basis on container purchases made through the CCPP up to a set annual limit. For each container type, a portion of the subsidy is reserved for programs with 5,000 households or fewer.
As the annual subsidy amount is limited, Blue Box program operators are advised to contact CIF prior to ordering to ensure funds remain available.
Reimbursements will be distributed by CIF following approval of documentation for purchase invoice, receipt of goods, and CIF Subsidy Request form (coming soon!) that will be completed by Blue Box program operators.
Please email Bradley Cutler, CIF Project Coordinator for more information about the CIF Subsidy Program.
