Grants to New Jersey schools and school districts for innovative projects. Focus areas include sustainability, racial equity, and virtual teaching and learning. Funding is intended for expenses related to green teams and for projects to help schools attain certification through the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program.
The grants program is an important program benefit for New Jersey public school districts and schools participating in Sustainable Jersey for Schools. The funding supports efforts to implement projects that help schools gain points needed for Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification and make progress toward a sustainable future. The funded projects serve as practical and innovative models for the rest of the State and make measurable contributions toward the long-term goal of a sustainable New Jersey
In recognition of the radically altered environment schools face due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national movement for racial justice, project proposals that support teaching and learning in a virtual or hybrid environment and those that address equity and anti-bias initiatives are encouraged. Additionally, Sustainable Jersey will be flexible with all grant recipient requests to modify their project scope, timeline, and budget due to changing circumstances.
District applicants should focus on programs or projects that benefit more than one school. School applicants should focus on school-level initiatives. Eligible grant expenses include staff stipends, consultant or contractor service fees (e.g., for content expertise, marketing, and/or technology), equipment, training and educational materials or related expenses, project supplies, and promotional items.
