The Department of Environmental Quality today announced it will be accepting applications for the 2010 Neighborhood Environmental Partners Awards. Facilities designated as Michigan Clean Corporate Citizens or participants in Michigan's Pollution Prevention Partnership Programs are eligible to apply.
The DEQ's Clean Corporate Citizens and Pollution Prevention Partners can compete for a NEP Program Award by developing an environmental mission statement and completing environmental projects and/or initiatives in their community. Applications will be accepted March 14 through May 16 and winners will be announced in June.
To assist interested participants, the DEQ has developed a Web site that has informational materials on the program requirements, as well as ideas and illustrations of community-based environmental activities.
