Tire-Derived Product (TDP) Grant Program

CalRecycle has issued the Notice of Funding Availability and released the Application for the 2014/15 Tire-Derived Product (TDP) Grant Program.

The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers a competitive grant program to provide opportunities to divert tires from landfill disposal, prevent illegal tire dumping, and promote markets for recycled-content products. The Tire-Derived Product Grant (TDP) Program is a reimbursement grant designed to use TDPs for repurposing projects such as pathways, landscaping, mats, playground surfacing, curb stops, and ramps.




  • Public entities which include: California cities, counties, public school districts, public colleges and universities, special districts, park or recreational districts, and state agencies (including offices, departments, bureaus, and boards).

  • Qualifying Indian Tribes. A “Qualifying Indian Tribe” is defined as an Indian tribe, band, nation or other organized group or community, residing within the borders of California, which:

    (1) is recognized for special programs and services provided by the United States to Indians because of the status of its members as Indians; or

    (2) can establish that it is a government entity and which meets the criteria of the grant program.


Only one application per qualifying entity will be accepted and only for projects within California. A minimum of 2,500 California-generated waste tires must be used per application. Multiple products/projects may be combined to achieve this minimum. Project(s) must not have previously received CalRecycle grant funds.


  • $823,747 available for fiscal year (FY) 2014/15

  • $150,000 per grant award

  • One or more projects can be combined into a single grant
