Sustainable Jersey for Schools Grants & Technical Assistance Programs

Sustainable Jersey for Schools strives to connect participating schools and districts with financial and technical resources to successfully complete actions and make progress towards a sustainable future. To that end, we directly offer multiple competitive grant and technical assistance opportunities funded by program underwriters and partner organizations each year.


Sustainable Jersey for Schools grants not only provide crucial financial support for projects that might otherwise not materialize, but also enable schools to complete actions that contribute toward certification. Review the Actions page for ideas on possible projects. All actions have a Resources section with organizations that can help with project completion.



Since 2009, Sustainable Jersey has awarded $5.9 million in grants to participating municipalities and school districts.
