New Jersey to benefit from DRPA’s unspent economic development funds

    Transity agencies might not be so thrilled, but New Jersey is getting some love from the Delaware River Port Authority.

    The DRPA has $29.9 million in unspent economic development funds, and most of that money will go toward projects in the Garden State.
    The Inquirer reports about $19.7 million (the rest going toward future capital projects) will fund projects like a $6 million cancer center at Cooper University Hospital and a $2 million student housing project at Rutgers-Camden.

    The Food Bank of South Jersey, facing a $300,000 deficit, will also get $2 million.
