U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) today announced $3,012,099 in funding to address the opioid crisis, reducing youth homelessness and implementing neighborhood outreach programs. The funding comes from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
“The programs funded by these grants offer support to vulnerable groups in our community – including homeless youth and children with a family member struggling with addiction,” said Congressman Norcross, Vice-Chair of the Bipartisan Addiction Task Force. “I’m hopeful that these federal resources will help change lives here in South Jersey. We will continue to work with our neighborhood partners to address the needs of all those in our community battling the disease of addiction.”
