Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations and municipalities in eligible locations to support environmental education programs and to develop open spaces in urban areas. Funding is intended for projects and activities that create, improve, or restore a community garden or urban green space. Applicants must clearly show how the public will access and enjoy the project. Projects must take place on publicly-owned land within the territorial limits of a “Distressed Municipality” or a “Targeted Investment Community.”

The Urban Green and Community Gardens Grant Program provides funding assistance to develop or enhance urban open spaces for public enjoyment and/or environmental education. Promotion of open space in an urban setting may include, but may not be limited to, the development of a community garden or reclaiming and enhancing existing open space for the public's use. Grants are awarded to projects that demonstrate the highest ability to benefit urban communities in close proximity to population centers.
