KENILWORTH, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders has awarded Kenilworth $23,400 as part of its “Senior Focus” grant.

The grant is designated to support the repairs and rehabilitation of senior facilities and the equipment used in those facilities. 18 towns in the county have been awarded $430,000 in total.

“This initiative is intended to support our senior adults and provide access to services that impact their quality of life,” Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Human Services Advisory Board, said in a press release.

In Kenilworth, the grant will be used to retrofit (add components that were not originally there) four doors and add two to the Kenilworth Senior Center.

The “Senior Focus” grant was offered as part of Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen’s “Year of the Senior” initiative in 2016. It complements the “Seniors in Motion” program, which provided vans for senior transportation to municipalities in the county.
