Union County and the City of Camden will share more than $11.5 million in federal money to help fund community initiatives to help low-income families and individuals.
Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez made the announcement yesterday. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will give $6.4 million to Union County and an additional $635,000 to Union Township, as the Star-Ledger reports, with the rest going to Camden.
The funding will be used for emergency homeless shelters, housing assistance, HIV/AIDS support and community development.
