Norcross Announces $2 Million in Federal Funding to Fight Homelessness & Substance Abuse in South Jersey

Today, U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) announced that Robins’ Nest, Inc. in Glassboro, New Jersey has been awarded a $2,000,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop a new Recovery and Housing Program to provide housing and support services for 300 homeless individuals with substance-use disorders. The funding will be provided in annual installments over the next five years.

“Every single day, at least one person in my district alone is dying from the disease of addiction, and we need to do everything we can to improve the recovery process and help those who are suffering,” said Congressman Donald Norcross, a Vice-Chair of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic. “I’m proud to have supported this grant that will help change lives in South Jersey. With the leadership of organizations like Robins’ Nest, we will continue to work together to provide affordable housing, combat homelessness and help our neighbors, friends and loved ones who are struggling with addiction.”
