2019 Neighborhood Preservation Program
Program Announcement And Application Webinar
Thursday, February 28, 2019
2:00 pm

The New Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP), originally established in 1975, has recently been reintroduced by the Governor Murphy Administration after a 10-year absence. NPP is designed to play a key role in implementing New Jersey’s neighborhood revitalization efforts by strengthening the ability of municipalities to plan and implement strategies to help declining neighborhoods become thriving neighborhoods; building partnerships between state and local governments, private businesses, and residents; and encouraging private investment to drive increased economic opportunities and quality of life in the state’s vulnerable communities. The goals of the new program are to 1) serve as a catalyst for economic development and 2) serve as a platform for the coordination of efforts by the State, municipalities, residents, businesses and other stakeholders to help declining neighborhoods become thriving ones.

To learn more about NPP and how to apply for funding, The Department of Community Affairs will conduct an informational and application webinar on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 2:00 pm. If interested in participating please register in advance by contacting Ms. Shatima Murphy at 609-292-6139 or email at Shatima.Murphy@dca.nj.gov.
