|(a) Program description. The Supplemental Funding Program (program) is intended to provide supplementary grants to local governments for the enforcement and/or policing of the Solid Waste Disposal Act and the Litter Abatement Act. This program shall be managed so as to provide financial assistance and incentive to local governments to develop, expand, and/or improve an existing municipal solid waste and/or litter abatement enforcement program within their area of jurisdiction. Multifaceted programs that seek to combine preventive measures, public education/awareness, surveillance, and enforcement, including sentencing programs that result in environmental services being provided to the local community, are encouraged by the commission. For funded programs, the commission expects that the local authority will continue to sustain the program after supplementary funding ceases. (b) Eligible recipients. Eligible recipients shall only be local governments of the State of Texas. (c) Participation frequency. Recipients shall be limited to one enforcement grant, issued under this section, during any specific contract performance period.
