Freeholders To Award Local Non-Profits $40,000 In Grants

The Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders will provide $40,000 in transportation mini-grants to 20 local non-profit organizations this week.

Despite less grant money than previous years, this outreach continues to separate Ocean County from the rest of the counties in NJ.

“The mini-grant program began in 1985 and has provided more than $1.6 million to a variety of non-profit organizations,” says Freeholder Director Gerry Little.  “Ocean County continues to be the only county in the state to provide a portion of its grant funds to help local non-profit agencies.”

The grants come from a portion of the casino revenue grant the county receives from NJ Transit.

Each organization will receive $2,000 to help upgrade their transportation services.

Little says the totals were limited this year due to the struggling Atlantic City casinos.

Organizations receiving funding include:

  1. The Arc, Ocean County Chapter, Inc
  2. Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey
  3. Community Medical Center Foundation
  4. Community Services, Inc. of Ocean County
  5. Counseling & Referral Services of O.C.dba Seashore Family Services, Inc.
  6. Eye Openers of Point Pleasant/Brick
  7. Interfaith Health & Support Services of Southern Ocean County
  8. Jewish Family & Children’s Services/Jewish Federation of O.C
