The submission deadline for Major Grants and Small Grants is October 1st, 5 P.M. Micro Grants will be considered on a rolling basis at the Green Fund's regular board meetings.
The Green Fund was established during the formation of the Greater New Haven Water Pollution Control Authority. New Haven and adjacent communities bear the burden of the operation of the Authority's facilities, and the fund seeks to offset resulting impacts on air, land, and water. The Green Fund has also received funds under a community benefits agreement with PSE & G, the operators of the New Haven Harbor Generating Station, to support (a) community-based education about air quality and the adverse health effects from air pollution and (b) environmental justice initiatives to improve air quality in lower Fair Haven and the New Haven Port area.
