Please be aware that grants must be requested BEFORE the start of a project. Completed projects will not be considered.


There are no restrictions on who can apply but the grant must be used on a project taking place within Connecticut. The maximum amount that can be requested is $500.


We are accepting proposals through August 1, 2024, with grants distributed on August 15. If there are additional files or photos that you would like to include with your proposal, please email those to [email protected] and reference the name of your project in the subject line.


Applicants will be notified via email of the status of their application.


We ask that those awarded grants report back on the progress of their project; including photos, which may be used in our communications. We also request that CT Hort be recognized for their support of your efforts and will provide a simple garden marker for this purpose.
