Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program
Eligible projects include actions that would score a municipality points toward Sustainable Jersey Certification. This includes projects that address issues such as:
• Renewable energy
• Waste reduction
• Green building design
• A sustainable master plan
• Water conservation
• Natural resources management
• Energy management
• Transportation issues
Most projects also include public outreach campaigns and many have involved school children and community organizations. The Small Grants program also gives capacity building awards to municipalities to support local green teams and their programs.
Over 100 municipalities submitted proposals that were judged by an independent Blue Ribbon Selection Committee. There were 12 towns that received $20,000 and $10,000 grants, and 22 municipalities received grants of up to $2,000. The Small Grants Program is made possible by generous funding by the PSEG Foundation.
