Freeholders approve COVID-19 municipal grants for all 26 towns in Hunterdon County

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – All twenty-six Hunterdon County municipalities have qualified and been approved for County COVID-19 municipal grants, as the Freeholder Board took action on the final three towns’ grant requests, at the December 15 Freeholder meeting.

“The Freeholders believe it is important to provide financial help, when we are in a position to do so, to our municipalities for the unanticipated emergency response costs brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren said.

The Freeholders allocated $50,000 in funds to provide grants to all twenty six municipalities in the County. The Board approved $1000 grants for Bloomsbury and Hampton and $1,543 for East Amwell, at the December 15th meeting. Grants were distributed on a per capita basis with a minimum grant of $1000.

Municipalities were required to complete an application and have their governing bodies approve the grant requests before submitting documentation to the County Office of Emergency Management.

“Hunterdon County has supported our local governments through the distribution of masks and personal protective equipment for use by municipal employees and first responders, as well as sanitizer and disinfectant material,” Freeholder Board Deputy Director Susan J. Soloway said.

“The County’s OEM Division has also provided assistance to towns in applying for state and federal reimbursements. The municipal grant program is a natural step in the County extending support to our communities,” Soloway said.
