Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program 2016

Since 2009, the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program has distributed nearly $1.7 million in grants to New Jersey municipalities to help towns make their communities more livable, environmentally friendly and prosperous. For 2016, PSEG is again generously providing $400,000 to support the Sustainable Jersey Small Grants Program.
Sustainable Jersey is pleased to announce that municipalities are eligible to apply for four $20,000 grants; eight $10,000 grants, and twenty $2,000 capacity building grants to support implementation of projects that help gain points needed for Sustainable certification and make progress toward a sustainable future.
This webinar will walk participants through the essentials of the online Sustainable Jersey Small Grants’ application process. Applications are due February 7, 2016
