Re: Sustainable Jersey: Announcement today of $200,000 for Municipal Sustainability Projects

Dear Mayor:

Good news, today we have announced the 2012 Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program. 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 local governments with four $20,000 grants, eight $10,000 grants and twenty $2,000 grants for projects like electric vehicle charging stations, school food composting centers and community gardens.

To date, $595,000 has been awarded through the Sustainable Jersey’s Small Grants program.  Eighty grants for sustainability projects have been given to New Jersey municipalities representing 20 counties. 

Towns and communities interested in applying for a grant can visit the Sustainable Jersey Web site ( to read the grant requirements and download the application. Proposals are due to Sustainable Jersey on July 15, 2012.
