Since 2008, 86 Massachusets cities and towns have received a combined total of $17,689,893 in Green Communities grant awards for clean energy projects in their community

These grants have helped fund projects that are creating local Massachusetts jobs and developing cleaner, safer and more sustainable energy options for these communities.  These projects have included solar photovoltaic installations, the development of energy management plans, installation of LED streetlights, and adopting various other energy efficient measures.

The Green Communities program is a crucial component of the Commonwealth’s efforts to create a cleaner energy future and you can visit the program web page to see a map of Green Communities in Massachusetts and to learn more about the program.
