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.


Current Opportunities

Application Deadline: Friday, February 11, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.



Complete Streets Technical Assistance 

The North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority’s Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program will be announced in December 2021. Municipalities within the NJTPA region can apply for free technical assistance services for a specific project related to advancing a complete streets initiative in their communities. Once announced, more information on this opportunity will be available here on our website


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

Sustainable Jersey grants not only provide crucial financial support for projects that might otherwise not materialize, but also enable towns to complete actions that contribute toward certification.  Review the Actions page for ideas on possible projects.  All actions have a Resources section with organizations that can help with project completion.

Annual Sustainable Jersey Grant Cycles

NOTE: All cycles are subject to change and official announcement will be made when funding cycles become available. All annual cycles are contingent on receiving funding for a given year.
