Safeguarding New Jersey’s legacy for future generations, Governor Chris Christie signed legislation securing more than $10 million to help preserve 58 historic sites throughout the Garden State. The Governor signed S-2898 in Mount Laurel at Paulsdale, the residence of suffragette and noted New Jerseyan Alice Paul. The home is on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places and is a designated National Historic Landmark.
The grants will be awarded and administered by the New Jersey Historic Trust, an affiliate of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA). Eligible projects are funded under several categories. Of the projects to be funded, $945,996 will be used to provide Historic Site Management Grants for 29 projects in 13 counties. These grants have a maximum award of $50,000 to support non-construction activities such as long-term operations planning and programs including building assessments, archaeology investigations and educational campaigns.
