Sustainable Jersey identifies resources to help municipalities develop a comprehensive sustainable community program. This includes financial resources in the form of grants and incentives, and technical support in the form of trainings, access to support organizations, and guidance material.
Sustainable Jersey registered towns get special priority access and notification of incentives and grants, and are eligible for the Sustainable Jersey Grants program.
The Gardinier Environmental Fund is contributing $150,000 to support a Sustainable Jersey Grants Program cycle for municipal governments and public school districts. For this grant cycle, the Gardinier Environmental Fund will fund energy projects focused on conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy. For more information, click HERE.
