PSEG FOUNDATION AWARDS $250,000 GRANT FOR JEWISH RENAISSANCE’S “BUILDING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES” INITAITIVE
Three-Year Commitment to Support Partnership with PSEG’s Comfort Partners Program
The Building Healthy Communities (BHC) initiative works from a comprehensive “’social determinants of health’ framework to improve the well-being of low-income residents who live within the City of Perth Amboy and the Central Jersey region. This funding will enable JRF to integrate PSEG’s “Comfort Partners Program” (CPP) with its existing Project Healthbuild. For eligible homes within Middlesex County, JRF’s “Project Healthbuild” is an existing housing repair program that addresses the “Improving Housing Capacity” element of BHC. JRF’s Project Heathbuild offers low-income and senior households with certain “building envelope” improvements, particularly those related to structural and life & safety factors.
