Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom MacArthur applauded the State’s decision to provide $1 million dollars in state security grants for non-profit organizations and religious institutions determined to be at high risk of terrorist attack in nine additional counties, including Burlington County.  (Ocean County was covered under a previous grant program.)

“I applaud Governor Christie for his commitment to protecting our residents during this time of heightened alert. In a recent meeting with Rabbi Benjamin David, from Adath Emanu-El in Mt. Laurel, we spoke about the need for increased security among non-profits in our region, especially considering the bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers. Attacks like this have no place anywhere in this country and must be stopped, which is why I would encourage eligible non-profit organizations to apply for the new SECUR-NJ grants. My office remains committed to working with any community organization through this grant process.”
