Grants in Gear is a nationwide program of the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) that provides funding to four Canadian environmental non-profit organizations or entrepreneurial groups.
A five-member independent review committee evaluated over 30 grant applications in 2013.
Over $100,000 in charitable funds was shared between the four winning applicants: Automotive Recyclers Environmental Association (AREA), Fraser Basin Council, Plug’n Drive, Recycling Council of Alberta.
Each grant was worth a maximum of $25,000 and the Green Recycled Parts Impact Award was worth an additional $5,000. This award was given to the applicant who was best able to show how the grant will be used to help them further achieve their long-term goal.
