Cherry Hill Township was allocated federal funds through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) CDBG-CV program, authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, which was signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020, to help prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic. A portion of these funds has been set aside to assist non-profits organizations servicing Cherry Hill Township.
Many local non-profits that have been providing necessary assistance to Cherry Hill residents are also in need themselves of help offsetting the costs of providing the services related to coronavirus response. This program will provide small grants (up to $20,000) to local non-profits (either located in Cherry Hill or providing services to the residents of Cherry Hill) that have been financially impacted due to an increase in the demand for services needed during this pandemic.
A full description of the grant program is within the grant application to be completed and submitted to the Township by 5:00pm, Friday March 26, 2021.
