Additional information about this funding program

Funding Source: ​The Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) requires Ecology to set aside at least one percent of revenues collected from the Hazardous Substance Tax to fund the PPG Program. The Legislature appropriates a specific amount each biennium from the State Toxics Control Account, Local Toxics Control Account, or the Environmental  Legacy Stewardship Account to fund PPG. Ecology will receive approximately $2.27 million for the 2017-19 funding cycle.
