Christie Administration announces 35 Local Aid grants totaling nearly $6.8 million
Towns in 18 counties are receiving funding for road repairs and for safety improvements along school routes


(Trenton) - The Christie Administration today announced a package of 35 grants through New Jersey’s Local Aid program totaling nearly $6.8 million to support local road and safety projects.

The package includes ten state-funded Local Aid Infrastructure Fund (LAIF) grants totaling $1.1 million for emergency road repairs and 25 federally funded Safe Routes to School grants totaling $5.7 million for sidewalk, intersection, crosswalk and other improvements to help children remain safe as they walk or ride bicycles to and from school.

“These grants are among hundreds distributed by this administration every year to help local and county governments advance essential projects without burdening local property taxpayers,” Acting Governor Kim Guadagno said. “Local Aid grants are funneling $380 million in state and federal funds to support worthy local projects and planning initiatives in the current fiscal year.”

The Local Aid Infrastructure Fund generally supports unanticipated expenses, and this round of grants includes funding that will supplement Federal Emergency Management Administration grants related to damage caused by Hurricane Irene in 2012.

The Safe Routes to School grants are awarded on a competitive basis. The 25 grants announced today will be provided to the recipients as their projects advance.

Complete lists of the recipients and grant amounts for the Local Aid Infrastructure Fund grants, the Hurricane Irene-related LAIF grants and the Safe Routes to School grants are available online by clicking on the links here. The state Local Aid program is administered by NJDOT.
