Sustainable Jersey Grants & Technical Assistance Programs


Sustainable Jersey strives to connect participating communities with financial and technical resources to successfully complete actions and make progress towards a sustainable future. To that end, we directly offer multiple competitive grant and technical assistance opportunities funded by program underwriters and partner organizations each year. In addition, we maintain a funding database that includes other opportunities offered by a wide range of government agencies, foundations, corporations, and non-profit organizations.

Since 2009, Sustainable Jersey has awarded over $6.5 million in grants to participating municipalities and school districts.
