Sustainable Jersey Announces Grant Program for Municipal Sustainability Projects
Deadline: July 15, 2012

Sustainable Jersey, a nonprofit that provides tools, training, and financial incentives for communities working to pursue sustainability programs, has announced the availability of $200,000 in grant money for municipal sustainability projects in towns and communities throughout New Jersey.

Funded by the PSEG Foundation, the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program will support thirty-two projects that leverage resources to make communities more livable, environmentally friendly, and prosperous.

The 2012 Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program will award four $20,000 grants, eight $10,000 grants, and twenty $2,000 grants to local governments for projects like an electric vehicle charging station, school food composting centers, and community gardens. Applicants must be a New Jersey municipality registered with the Sustainable Jersey program and have an active “Green Team.”

To apply, a municipality must submit a proposal describing its local sustainability initiative and detailing the commitment of the municipality to sustainability and collaboration with nearby municipalities to leverage resources.

Complete grant requirements and the application form are available at the Sustainable Jersey Web site.
