Sustainable CT Community Match Fund


Sustainable CT's Community Match Fund is an innovative program that provides fast, flexible funding and support for engaging your community on wide-ranging sustainability projects. Eligible projects receive dollar-for-dollar matching funds from Sustainable CT.

Have an idea to make your community more sustainable, equitable, and vibrant? Contact our Community Outreach Manager.


Anyone in a Sustainable CT registered municipality can participate in this program to implement highly visible projects to improve their communities. Municipalities, nonprofits, community groups, schools, libraries, and individual residents can all propose projects and double their impact with our match funding.

We currently have special, targeted resources available for projects dealing with composting and energy (efficiency & renewable).  And don’t forget that towns can align projects to gain Action Points toward certification – a win-win! For inspiration, check out these examples of projects we’ve supported in these two vital areas:

In Composting:

Greenwich Food Scrap Recycling Pilot Program
New Canaan Composting Initiative
Stamford Food Scrap Recycling Initiative


In Energy (Efficiency & Renewable):

CHEER Middletown Energy Efficiency Program

Branford Clean Energy Campaign
New Haven I ♥ My Home Energy Efficiency Upgrade Program
