South Jersey Non-Profits Receive State Funding

Last Edited:

Several community projects throughout the state, including some right here in South Jersey, have received new state funding.

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) announced on Monday, January 28th, that $9.76 million in grants have been awarded to several community-based non-profit organizations through the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit program.

In South Jersey, those who received funding include Cooper's Ferry Partnership in Camden, the Holly City Development Corporation in Millville, and the Cooper Health System in Camden.

Funds from the program are used by neighborhood-based non-profit organizations that have prepared, submitted and received approval from DCA for a revitalization plan for the neighborhood it serves.

The funds must be used by the eligible organizations for projects and activities that will implement the goals and strategies of the approved neighborhood plan.

Projects include open space improvements, community outreach activities, and infrastructure improvements.
