South Jersey counties get $800k share of state’s Homeland Security funding

    Federal funding to states has decreased, but South Jersey will still get a nice chunk of the Garden State’s $27.8 million from the federal Department of Homeland Security.

    The counties in the southern part of the state will get more than $800,000, according to the Press of Atlantic City, a part of the federal agency’s funding for core security programs.

    Four counties — Atlantic, Cumberland, Ocean and Cape May — will receive more than $100,000 each.
