Re: Deadline is August 4, 2013 for Submitting Sustainable Jersey Small Grant Proposal

Dear Mayor:

The deadline for submitting a Sustainable Jersey Small Grants application is August 4, 2013. 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.

Towns and communities interested in applying for a grant can visit to read the grant requirements and download the application. Proposals are due to Sustainable Jersey on August 4, 2013.

Twitter Contest: Towns that don’t have time to apply for a grant can simply send a Tweet.  From now through August 4, 2013, Sustainable Jersey is asking community members to Tweet what an extra $1,000 would mean to their Green Team. Visit for the official contest rules.
