U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) today announced that Saint Joseph’s Carpenter Society will receive $207,500 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) NeighborWorks America program to help provide affordable housing in Camden.

“With more jobs, less crime and positive educational results, it’s clear Camden is rising – and now we’re seeing more affordable housing options for our friends and neighbors,” said Congressman Norcross. “I’ve long-said that everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to live, and organizations like Saint Joseph’s Carpenter Society are rebuilding homes so that no family gets left behind. As always, I look forward to continuing to work with our partners at every level of government, charities and businesses as we keep making Camden an even better place to call home.”
