Re: Sustainable Jersey: Announcement today of $380,000 for Municipal Sustainability Projects

Dear Mayor:

Good news, today we have announced the first cycle of the 2013 Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program. Funded by Walmart, the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program will support seventy projects that leverage resources to make communities more livable, environmentally friendly and prosperous. With this contribution, Walmart will exceed the $1,000,000 mark having provided funding for the grant program each year since 2009. 

This first cycle of the 2013 Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program will award local governments:

  • One (1) $50,000 grant
  • Four (4) $20,000 grants
  • Fifteen (15) $10,000 grants
  • Fifty (50) $2,000 capacity building grants.

Sustainable Jersey anticipates a second cycle of the Small Grants Program in late September 2013.

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 August 4, 2013. Sustainable Jersey plans to announce the winners early this fall.
