Prudential has proudly partnered with The Community Foundation of New Jersey to manage the Prudential Community Grants Program.

The Prudential Community Grants Program will provide local organizations and individuals with micro grants to support projects that create vibrancy in their neighborhoods. These community-based projects have the potential to make neighborhoods more stable and empower residents to make changes they want to see. Local change makers and leaders often have the solutions to support their neighborhoods, but typically do not have access to financial resources.


Thank you for your interest in the Prudential Community Grants Program. The application period is now closed and we are no longer accepting applications. Please refer to this page for future updates.
