An organization working to revitalize South Jersey has received some new funding to help continue its work.

South Jersey legislators from the 3rd Legislative District announced on Friday, August, 4th, that the Gateway Community Action Partnership (Gateway CAP), based in Bridgeton, was approved to receive a grant of a little more than $180,000 through the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.

The award, which is provided to the state by the United States Department of Energy, will help the group improve energy efficiency in low-income housing in Gloucester, Cumberland, and Salem counties by providing new insulation, air sealing, and weatherstripping. It will also replace old appliances with more energy efficient ones.

State officials have praised the award, saying it will better help low-income residents beat the summer heat and survive rough winters while saving energy and ultimately saving money.
