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. Watch highlights of inspiring Community Match Fund projects on CPTV's "Re:source:ful - Growing Sustainable Communities."

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.
