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.

Sustainable Jersey is offering free Public Information & Engagement (PIE) Technology Assessments that will provide four municipalities (population sizes 2,000 to 60,000) with Local Public Information & Engagement Action Plans.  Learn more here. Applications are due August 9.


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.
