All certified UConn Master Gardeners, Interns and Extension Coordinators are eligible to apply for a grant. Membership in CMGA is not required to apply for or receive a grant.

Grant Applications can be submitted throughout the year unless otherwise noted on the Application. Applications must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the monthly Board meeting (held the first Tuesday of the month) to be considered at that meeting.

Grants will be evaluated based on the selection criteria in the CMGA Grant Guidelines and awarded until the budget limit is reached.

Grants must be requested BEFORE a project is undertaken; grant requests for completed projects will not be considered.

Grant applications must be filled out ONLINE ONLY by clicking on the link below. Please review the Grant application guidelines before applying for a CMGA grant.

After you submit your application, you will receive an email receipt with your Grant information.

INTERNS: Please remember to forward a copy of your CMGA Grants Application email receipt to your extension coordinator for e-signature and approval. We cannot consider your application at our Board of Directors meeting until we receive this e-approval.

If you need to make changes to your Grant information or have questions, please email your updates to the Grants committee.
