When Essex County announced the recipients of this year’s funding for infrastructure improvements, community programs and building renovations—totaling $5.4 million distributed between 14 municipalities and 34 community organizations in 2020—three Livingston-based non-profits were among the organizations to benefit from the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG). Through the CDBG program—funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and administered by the Essex County Division of Housing and Community Development—the Arc of Essex County received $29,000 for an ADA-compliant vehicle; the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Essex County chapter received $9,700 for its job readiness program; and Jewish Family Services (JFS) received $7,800 to help provide services to frail and homebound older adults.
