The program will award schools that want to go green, conserve resources and take steps to a bright future, one school at a time.
To support this program, The Gardinier Environmental Fund will be awarding $150,000 in grants.
Grants will be awarded to New Jersey municipalities and public school districts that have completed two things:
First, schools need to be registered to go green
Second, they have to have an appointed green team that meets the program requirements
