Allen Praises New Jersey Historic Trust Grant For Bordentown Friends Meetinghouse

Senator Diane Allen (R-Burlington) applauded an announcement by Governor Chris Christie today that the Bordentown Friends Meetinghouse has been approved for a $50, 000 Capital Preservation Grant by the New Jersey Historic Trust.

The New Jersey Cultural Trust was created about 12 years ago as a public/private partnership to help ensure a stable and healthy nonprofit cultural industry in New Jersey that is sustainable even in the toughest of economic times. The Trust provides grants to support capital projects, endowments and institutional and financial stabilization of arts, history and humanities organizations in New Jersey. Funding for the grant comes from interest earned on the Cultural Trust Fund, which is a permanent investment fund.
