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

Gardinier Environmental Fund Energy Grant Cycle

The Gardinier Environmental Fund is contributing $100,000 to support a Sustainable Jersey Grants Program cycle for municipal governments and public school districts.  For this grant cycle, the Gardinier Environmental Fund will support energy projects focused on conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy.  Learn more here. Applications are due October 30.


Since 2009, Sustainable Jersey has awarded $5.6 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.
