Grants of up to $20,000 to New Jersey nonprofit organizations for projects to benefit the local community in eligible locations. Funding may also be used to support applicants providing services to residents in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Local non-profits, either located in Cherry Hill or providing services to the residents of Cherry Hill, may apply.

Communities receiving CDBG block grants are free to develop their own programs and funding priorities based on local community development needs. However, these “entitlement communities” must promote the national CDBG objectives by giving the highest funding priority to activities that benefit low, very low, and extremely low-income persons, or that aid in the elimination and prevention of slums and blight.

Eligible activities include acquisition of real property for an eligible use, construction and rehabilitation of public facilities, demolition and clearance of deteriorated buildings, community services for low, very low and extremely low income persons or households, removal of barriers that restrict the mobility of elderly and severely disabled adults, and special economic development activities.

Some of the funds provided to Cherry Hill Township are being used to support local non-profit organizations that are providing assistance to the local community in response to COVID-19 and to those that have been adversely impacted by COVID-19 and provide services that meet the national CDBG objectives.

Cherry Hill Township will fund applicants who exemplify the capacity to promote quantifiable benefits to low, very low and extremely low income households within Cherry Hill Township and address the ongoing needs of Township residents during this pandemic.
