ROSELLE, NJ - The borough of Roselle will be reviewing applications for Community Development Enhancement Grant funds (CDEG) for the period 2015. All applications are due at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 20 for local non-profit groups seeking to receive Community Development Enhancement Grants through the borough of Roselle.

The new grant program, with awards beginning at $500, is geared to support non-profit and faith-based organizations that are working to improve the quality of life in Roselle. The borough will assess how each applicant would serve at-risk residents, including children, seniors, people with disabilities, veterans and those with a lower income.

“We strongly encourage non-profit organizations to submit applications for this competitive grant program,” said Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley, noting a committee of elected representatives and community leaders will closely review all applications and make careful decisions based on who “can do the most with the least” to help Roselle residents.

All grant awards must receive final approval from the Mayor and Council and are ultimately based on the availability of funds.

Applicants must fill out an application (and provide four additional copies), detailing how their projects support community-centered activities, help local children and families or create economic opportunities for Roselle residents. Applications should be mailed or dropped off at Borough Hall, 210 Chestnut St., to the attention of the Division of Economic Development in the Department of Administration.
