Applications are now being accepted for the Camden City Community Grant Program to award grants from $500 to $5,000 to applicants focusing on community building activities, George Norcross announced today.
Norcross, the chairman of Cooper University Health Care, said that the new program will loom to address social detriments of health that have a significant impact on the health and welfare of the community. Potential grant recipients could be involved in areas of employment, literacy, childhood experience, physical environment, social and community supports, nutrition, and the arts.
The community building grants will be awarded over the next five years to non-profit community organizations in Camden who are committed to making the city a healthier place to live, work, learn and play, Norcross said.
Grant guidelines, eligibility requirements and application are available on The Cooper Foundation’s website at https://foundation.cooperhealth.org/Camden-community-grant.
The program was initially announced in January by the Norcross Foundation, the Michaels Organization, NFI and the Cooper Foundation.
