Sustainable CT Community Match Fund

Sustainable CT is thrilled to announce the launch of our Community Match Fund through a series of info sessions in September throughout the state. This is an innovative program that will provide a fast, flexible funding mechanism to support sustainability-related projects throughout Connecticut.

Sustainable CT will provide one-to-one matching funds for projects that align with Sustainable CT actions and Community Match Fund projects will help your town earn points towards certification. We will match up to $25,000, supporting projects with a total value of up to $50,000, and support you in crowdfunding to engage your community and raise the remainder of the project funds. We’ve partnered with ioby (“in our backyards”), a non-profit civic oriented crowdfunding platform to run the match and support fundraising. Find out more. 

We look forward to supporting great projects that benefit Connecticut communities. Stay tuned for updates! Contact Abe Hilding-Salorio, our Community Outreach Manager, at (860) 465-0256 for more information.
