Eligible organizations can apply for funding toward COVID-19 relief initiatives

(Passaic County, New Jersey) - Passaic County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders and Department of Planning & Economic Development announced the launch of a COVID-19 relief grant opportunity to support non-profit organizations in a variety of programs throughout our communities.

Passaic County non-profit organizations are invited to submit an application to the County of Passaic for Community Development Block Grant-CV (CDBG-CV) funding. Completed applications must be submitted via email to passaiccountyCARES@passaiccountynj.org by 4 p.m. on June 23, 2020.

CDBG-CV funding was authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, in response to the growing effect of the current public health crisis. The County anticipates receiving approximately $537,434 from CDBG-CV funding which will be added to the Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Plan as a substantial amendment. Funds will be allocated to eligible non-profit agencies for projects implemented in the following twelve (12) participating communities: Bloomingdale, Haledon, Hawthorne, Little Falls, North Haledon, Pompton Lakes, Prospect Park, Ringwood, Totowa, Wanaque, West Milford, and Woodland Park.

Applicants must thoroughly demonstrate how awarded funds would support local pandemic responses through measures that prevent and respond to the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
